House, now old people's home, mid-C17 with some early C19 alterations.
Sandstone, random in hall but coursed in cross-wing which also has copings
on kneelers. Concrete tiles. L-shaped plan with hall and cross-wing, with
central axial chimney stack and subsidiary stack (probably C19) above hall
gable. Original front (now facing garden) altered in early C19 (sundial
above doorway bears inscription 'Made by J. Blackburn 1829') so as to have
a roughly central doorway with chamfered jambs and Tudor-arched lintel under
a hoodmould and to its left, on both floors, a 3-light mullioned window with
a similar one to the right on first floor. However, below this on ground

inner chamfers on ground floor (to light parlour), a 5-light mullioned
window on first floor and 3-light stepped windows in gable, all

entrance front and was remodelled in early Cl9 with a roughly central
doorway with panelled and glazed door, a 3-light window on each floor to
right, one similar window to left on first floor and, presumably, on ground
floor though this is now hidden by a C20 outshut. Cross-wing projects to
Left with a 3-light stepped window in gable, a 5-light mullioned window on
first floor (both double-chamfered under hoodmoulds), a Cl9 4-light window
to left on ground floor and, on right, 3 original windows related to
