Large house of Elizabethan appearance on the outside although there is much
restoration and large windows of Elizabethan style have been inserted. Inside
there appear the remains of a much older house, possibly C14 or early C15.
So much has been altered that certainty is difficult.

doorway. Stone plinth. Tudor brickwork. Tile roof. Casement windows with
