Farmhouse. Early C16 remodelled in C17 and extended in early C19. Rendered stone
and cob. Thatch roof, half-hipped at right end, gable end to left. Gable-ended
slate roof to rear wing. Lateral front hall stack with off-sets, moulded and
tapered cap and brick shaft. Brick stack at left end.
Originally an open hall house, the lower end and through-passage have probably been
demolished, the parlour end rebuilt or added probably in C17. In the C19 a 2-
storey rear wing was added by extending what may once have been a projecting stair
turret to rear of hall, with a dairy lean-to in the angle and a lean-to added to
front right end.
2 storeys. 2-window range. C20 2-light casements, 6 panes per light to left, 4
panes per light to right. Ground floor has 2-light casement, 2 panes per light to
left of plank door and corrugated asbestos roof to lean-to at right end.
Interior: 2 roughly chamfered ceiling beams to hall. C17 chamfered door surround
with scroll-stopped durns to doorway, possibly originally to stair turret to rear
of hall, now giving access to rear extension. C19 staircase introduced into rear
right-hand corner of hall. Roof structure over parlour and rear wing not
accessible. Over hall there are two C17 trusses with straight principals, lap-
jointed collars and trenched purlins, but some of the lower purlins and ridge
purlin are reused smoke-blackened timbers suggesting the hall was originally open
to the roof.
