mullions (they appear to be modern replicas in enlarged openings). Coped verges
with modern chimneys. South return has 2 light mullion window and later glazed

Two storey wing to south-east with 3 later sash windows and on ground floor

unusual fireplace - fluted frieze to high corniced mantel. Supporting figures

the Manor House at Farrington Gurney) see description in Parliamentary Survey
of 1650.
