House. Mid C16 centre block and south-east cross-wing; 1669 north-west
cross-wing. (The date and initials CTK have been removed from the gable end).
Mid C18 additions to north-west cross-wing. Main range and south-east cross-wing
are timber-framed but cased or rebuilt in red brick. North-west cross-wing of
coursed and squared sandstone. Plain-tiled roofs with gable end parapets and
shaped coping. Ridge stack of red brick and 2 side stacks. Ridge stack of red
brick and 2 side stacks to north-west cross-wing. Original plan of main range
with south-east cross-wing with the north-west cross-wing added and now forming
H-plan. 2 storeys to main range and cross-wing. Main range has later C19 wood
dormer. Flat arches of rusticated sandstone and gauged brick arches to 2 ground
floor windows and doorway. Panelled door. In rear wall are mid C18 window
openings with original mullions with quadrant mouldings. South-east cross-wing:
the front gable end has a blind attic window and similar rusticated sandstone
arches to one ground and one first floor window. The rear gable of this
crosswing has exposed framing. Cambered tie-beam on jowled posts with curved
bracing. Queen-struts to through-purlin roof with wind bracing. North-west
cross-wing: 2 storeys and attic. Attic window has original splayed casement
surround with chamfered mullion. Enlarged ground and first floor windows.
Another original window with chamfered mullion in side wall. Also in side wall
an original chimney stack of sandstone, flush with the wall having the upper
courses of red brick and a cogged brick string at eaves height. Another side
stack in the same wall is probably mid C18. Red brick. In the rear wall a mid
C18 doorway leads to a further addition of mid C18 probably for a service range.
Red brick, Flemish bond, and plain-tiled roof with end parapets and coping
similar to those of the 1761 stable block and dovecote. 2 storeys. In gable end
to south-west a casement with Y-tracery in 2-centred arch. Rear gable has

roof on Queen struts with cambered tie-beams. Wind bracing in the roof. Doorway
in side wall has arched head and old strap hinges to the door. The main range
roof is of similar construction. In the walls little of the framing is visible
apart from the wall plate suggesting that the replacement by red brick was more

lined with raised and fielded deal panelling in 2 heights with a cornice,
probably mid C18. There are 2 and 4 panelled doors throughout the house. A
