upper edge. Half H-plan. Two storey hall range with two C20
metal windows, one to each storey, and off-centre doorway,
possibly leading to a cross-passage. Gable ends of crosswings
each have five C20 metal casements probably on the sites of the
original openings. Interior: A staircase has now been inserted
into the original cross-passage but the original opposing
doorways remain, although the doors are later. the service and
kitchen crosswing to the right hand has an inglenook hearth.
There are stop chamfered main beams to the chamber over the
hall. The hall, the chamber over the hall and the ground floor
room to the parlour crosswing all have corner fireplaces. The
roof is of staggered butt-purlin construction. Possibly
associated with Dutch prisoners of war who were used for
construction of the New Bedford River and who remained after
peace was concluded in 1654.
