House, probably 1676. Sandstone rubble with slate roof. North wall of 5
irregularly-spaced bays between 2 projecting gabled wings. Windows

hollow chamfer. Most have individual hood moulds. To the left of the door
are windows of 3 and 4 lights. To the right are ones of 3 and 3 lights.
Those on the 1st floor are of 3, 3, 2, 4, and 4 lights. The door has a
chamfered surround, partly re-dressed, with an embattled lintel inscribed:
'EW [Edward Wilson] 1676'. The left-hand wing has one-light chamfered
windows to the 1st and attic floors. Its right-hand return wall has a
2-light window on the ground floor and one of 3 lights above. The
right-hand wing has a blank front wall and a left-hand return wall with a

projects at the right, and a former granary, now part of the house,
projects at the left. The latter has a steeply-pitched roof. Between them
are a 3- and a 4-light window, now linked by a further 3 lights. On the
1st floor are ones of 3 and one light, with a 2-light stair window further
right. The gable wall of the former granary has modern timber steps
covering the ground floor. On the 1st floor are 2 3-light windows with a
modern door with plain reveals between them, all under a hood. The
right-hand (east) wall has a modern door with plain reveals, a one-light
window where it adjoins the house, and a projecting chimney. The west wall
has a one-bay link to the main house and a 6-light mullioned window under
the eaves with rebated and chamfered jambs and a timber lintel. On the
ground floor are 2 chamfered loops. On the 1st floor are 2 shaped
