storeys and attic. One C19 - C20 casement to each storey of
hall and crosswing. Interior: Abutting inglenook hearths. One
to right hand in the kitchen, has been much rebuilt. The other
to the former open hall has soft red brick to the jambs and
narrow gault brick to the stack. Floor inserted in this room in
the C17. Narrow joists laid on edge. The wall between the hall
and crosswing has six painted panels between the studs, the

early C17, with approximately six to each panel. The panels are
now concealed. Two doorways possibly on the site of the
original service doorways, lead to the crosswing. The dog leg
staircase has a c.1660 balustrade of flat section balusters, and
the square newel has a faceted ball finial. A small closet at
first floor still retains coat and hat pegs which are possibly
late C17. The crosswing has a clasped side purlin roof with
curved wind bracing. The roof over the former open hall has
been rebuilt but retains a pair of sooted rafters from the
original.
