and painted brick; plain tile roof with catslide over partial outshut at
rear. T-plan; 2 framed bays aligned approximately east-west with addition
to west and wing to north. Framing: square panels (3 from sole-plate to
wall-plate) with long straight tension braces. One storey and attic,
2 storeys and gable-lit attic. 2 gabled full dormers to right with early
C20 3-light leaded wooden casements; large brick ridge stack off-centre
to right (rebuilt above roof in late C20) and C20 external brick end stack
to left (replacing old stack). 3-window front; first-floor C19 3-light
leaded wooden casement to left and ground-floor C20 three- and 4-light wooden
casements to right; 3-light window and boarded door to left behind C20
lean-to addition also with 3-light window and boarded door. Right-hand
return front has central half-glazed door with early C19 panelled surround
and bracketed porch; exposed collar and tie-beam truss above with queen struts
and v-struts, C19 two-storey gabled wing at rear with dentil brick eaves
cornice. Two C20 gabled dormers at rear. Interior: timber framed
square-panelled cross-walls with tension braces; chamfered beams and joists
with ogee stops; open fireplace; ground-floor room to right with painted
probably C19 panelling; roof has collar and tie-beam trusses with queen
struts, and single purlins with wind braces. A corn mill and fulling mill
had been established here by 1581. The house forms part of a complete mill
group including the former mill (qv) and stables (qv) to the south, and a
large barn to the west (qv). A mid-C20 photograph kept in the house shows
it before the later C20 alterations. V.C.H., Vol. VIII, p.307; D. T. Merry,
