leaded casements set below the labels of their stone-mullioned predecessors, and
in the gable has a 2-light casement below the datestone. Contemporary rear wing,
returning from it, has further leaded casements and may have been extended in
C18; it has a further ridge stack plus a bellcote. C19 infill range has sashes,

large canted bay window with a stone cornice. A short single-storey range

links to a stable and coach- house range which has a leaded 3-light
ovolo-moulded wood-mullion window in the gable wall, and also incorporates a
small blocked 2-light C13 window; the coach house door has a brick depressed
arch and the rear wall has a single-row dovecote below the eaves. Interior not
