sandstone, stone slate roof. Now L-shaped plan, formed by 3-unit front range
with added wing to rear of left end. Two storeys and attics; 2-storey gabled

spandrels, above this an oriel window of 5 round-headed lights with hollow
spandrels, a datestone incorporated in the sill lettered "W S 1658",
gable coping with kneelers bearing finials; otherwise, 3 recessed mullion
windows on each floor (all probably C19 restorations), those at ground floor
of 5, 7 and 5 round-headed lights and those above all of 5 lights but that at
the left end with a low transom making square lower lights which are all
blocked, and the centre light above similarly blocked. Right-hand, corner of
front is chamfered at ground floor aid has windows matching those at the
front. Graduated slate roof with 2 inserted dormers, 2 chimneys on the
ridge, gable coping with kneelers and apex finials. Left-hand gable has a
large C19 two-storey canted bay window with mullioned windows on both levels,
the lower transomed, and an embattled parapet, and to the rear of this, and
above, mullioned windows like those at the front. Continued to rear, the
added wing in C17 style has a gabled crosswing at the further end and a
2-storey canted oriel in the angle, with embattled parapet, and mullioned and
mullion-and-transom windows like the others.

Interior: apparently entirely reconstructed, as if after a fire, but in C17
