Farmhouse. Probably late C17 or early C18, enlarged in later

rubble and coursed squared sandstone (the north range
watershot), with slate roofs and brick chimneys.
Large irregular rectangular plan formed by 3 ranges on an
east-west axis parallel to the lane, the earliest probably
that in the centre, the next on the south side (beside lane)
and the last at the rear. 2 storeys, the 4-window west front
composed of 3 unequal gables and the southernmost of these set
back and overlapped by a gabled 2-storey porch. This porch has
a square-headed doorway with rectangular lintel and studded
board door, and a square window above with altered glazing.
To the right, the west gable of the south range has one
3-light chamfered mullion window on each floor, both with
simple hoodmoulds and now blocked; its south side has 2
enlarged windows on each floor and a blocked former doorway at
the right-hand end; its east gable has blocked mullioned
windows like those at the front, and a gable chimney.
The wide intermediate gable of the west front has one square
window on each floor, with raised sills, thin lintels and
altered glazing; and the narrower gable to the left has a
doorway at the junction and one altered window on each floor,
all these with wedge lintels. Various chimneys. INTERIOR:
remodelled, but centre range has chamfered beams of C17 type.
