House. The earlier range to the south comprises an early C14 2-bay raised
aisle hall with a late C16 parlour addition to the east; early C19 range to
north forming double pile plan; C20 additions to west. Timber-framed and
plastered with hipped pantiled roof; the C19 range is roughcast-rendered. 2
storeys. Early C19 mullion and transom windows of 2, 3 and 4 lights, with
pointed arches within the upper part of the lights and leaded panes in the
form of elongated hexagons; to the north the windows have paired boarded
shutters. Some C18 square-leaded windows to earlier range. Half-glazed
entrance door in C20 addition. The raised-aisle structure has octagonal
arcade posts with boldly roll-moulded bases and capitals (now mutilated); the
southern side-aisle has been removed and the arcade post is now partly
embedded in the external wall. There are massive straight or very slightly
curved braces to the arcade plate. There is evidence for 3 tie beams to the
open truss: these, together with their associated roof structure, are missing,
although some smoke-blackened rafters remain. At the upper end of the hall is
an inserted stack. Good exposed timbering to the parlour, with evidence for
original windows; exposed joists to the inserted floor in the hall.
