facaae with a moulded band at 1st floor and a slight set-back at the entrance
bay and at the corners. Hipped slated roof with modillioned eaves soffit (the
rear and internal slopes are plaintiled). External chimneys of gault brick
and a large rear stack of red brick. Sash windows; those at ground floor have
elliptical heads of gauged brick, and those at upper floor have cambered
heads. Small-pane sashes, at ground floor having sidelights. A pair of
panelled entrance doors; circular panels below, and glazed with small panes
above. Greek Doric portico with columns and flat entablature. At the sides
are areas of plastered timber-framed walling and painted C16 brickwork. A
little heavy close-studding and other C16 timber-framing survives, and there
is believed to be a large open fireplace and moulded plaster ceilings in two
rooms, all now concealed. Until C20, a chamber had full C16 panelling,
incorporating the Arms of Wentworth. Some interesting early C19 joinery
including panelled architraves. For full history of the site: MANORS OF
