gables have coping with kneelers. There is a 2-storey gabled porch with a 2-light
mullioned window to the 1st floor, a continuous moulding at the 1st floor level,
stepped up at the centre to enclose a carved datestone, S.B. (Simon Benett) 1659.
The outer doorway has an elliptical head with a carved console key. The inner
doorway is square headed with moulded wooden frame. Gothic glazing in upper part
of doors. 2 of the early mullioned windows survive, the others are C18 casements
and sashes, some in early openings showing moulded stonework. A long lower wing
lies east at the north end of that already described. Alternate thick and thin
ashlar to east. Rubble to north. High tiled roofs, ashlar chimney with moulded
string and cap. 2 three light mullioned windows with flat arches over labels.
