Omars manor. Two storeys and attics. Early C17 clunch
cross-wing to north with quoins and parapet to west rebuilt in
small local, late C17 bricks; flint foundations and brick band
to stepped clunch plinth; some original ovolo mullioned
casement windows, and C19 or modern replacements. Range to

brick plinth, sawtooth eaves cornice and parapet gable to
south; roof raised in C19 on front elevation; windows sealed
or with later, C19 replacements, one original casement with
lattice lights in south gable. Two fine, square stacks with

casement windows, and three ground floor casement windows.
Cross wing has two stone mullioned three-light casement
