House. C14, extended C18, with some late C20 additions. Timber-frame
with tile and corrugated iron roof; brick with tile roof and concrete block
with tile roof. L-plan, with limbs extending to west and north. The latter
is C18 to the north end, C20 to south. The former is C14 with a contemporary
cross-wing to the west. West front of later range is of two storeys with
dog-tooth brick cornice, two windows, each a 2-light casement under segmental
head. Ground floor has one 2-light casement and two entrances, each with a
segmental head and a ledged and boarded door. The C20 portion has a window
on each floor immediately to the right of this range. The C14 timber-frame
is stripped to frame. Interior of hall is of two main bays with cross-passage
to east end. The spere truss between hall and passage has an arch-braced
collar and a tie-beam. The soffit of the tie-beam has empty mortices indicat-
ing the position of the spere posts, which had angle braces up to the tie-beam.
The side panels were filled with wattle-and-daub. The central truss has a low
set collar originally with arch-braces from the wall-posts. Above the collar
are two cusped raking struts, forming a central quatrefoil panel flanked by
two trefoils. The intermediate truss in the upper bay is a simple arch-braced
collar. The two tiers of purlins have cusped wind-braces. Most of the wall-
frame has been removed, but there is evidence of a 4-light window in south
wall with two diamond mullions preserved. The louvre, which was recorded, has
been removed. The cross-wing is of two framed bays and is floored. The wall-
frames have large curved angle braces to both floors. The roof is of clasped
purlin construction with simple curved wind-braces. Entrance to hall (later
blocked) has an ogee head. The lateral stack on the west wall is of ashlar
with a brick shaft. (RCHM, 3, p 62, no 3; Bismanis, MR: Minor Domestic
Architecture of the Middle Ages in the Counties of Herefordshire and Shropshire,
