remodelled in late C18 and early C19; with attached barn/byre of
similar dates; House herringbone-tooled coursed sandstone; pantiled
roof with stone dressings. Barn coursed small rubble in nearer

bays with a wide, late C18 added left bay. Barn at right 5 irregular
bays. Through-passage door, immediately to right of main house now
blocked and window inserted; lintel dated 1690, with initials WP
and WT, looks reset. 4-pane house door, at right of late C18
extension, has small casement above and 2 sash windows, lost
intermediate bars, under broad, stepped, keyed, tooled wedge
lintels, at left. Main house has a 16-pane sash and a 3-light
Yorkshire sash, both under heavy lintels, on ground floor; and two
16-pane sashes above, with similar lintels and projecting cills.
Barn has small chamfered fixed light to right of passage door; then

alternating-block surround. On first floor a small inserted light
at left and 5 vent slits above. Roofs have stone copings and
curved kneelers. 3 stepped and corniced chimneys to house. Rear
elevation of house considerably altered, with 3 wide, raking
dormers and a pent extension with 2 modern windows. Other windows
various. Near-contemporary lean-to. Through-passage door has
chamfered Tudor arch with initials H.H., which look much later than
C17. Other openings similar to front of barn.
Interior: within the entrance hall a 2-light chamfered stone-
mullioned window on the right indicates the external wall of the
original house.

C20 right extension to barn is not of interest.
