Wing: front room has large raised-and-fielded panelling with dado rail

A fine house preserving much of its original fenestration and several
interior fittings, which with its garden wall, gate-piers and 2 large
barns (q q.v.) perhaps preserves an unaltered C17 appearance better
than any other in the parish.
