brick buildings of similar size, the N one greatly enlarged in early C19
as a secondary residence to Offley Place and linked to the S building
and its attached outhouses. Red brick to S building with steep old red
tile roof. N building similar brickwork to S part but refronted and
continued on E and N by chequered red brick with black headers and
hipped slate roof. The S building is of 1 1/2-storeys facing E with
internal gable chimneys serving the upper floor with gable-end windows.

the upper window is a dummy. Entrance into a stone paved hall with stair
at rear. Formerly 2 rooms to N now thrown together. Wide recess in W
