storeys with a central stack, later extended to east and raised to 2-storey
height; to north are 2 parallel and adjoining mid-C17 wings of which the

wings, dentilled eaves cornice to south range; framing: now brick-cased

approached by a flight of steps) above a cellar window to left of east wing;
one further range of C20 casements to right; present entrance in centre of
2 parallel wings, 6-panel door in late C20 pedimented doorcase; prominent
red brick ridge stack to south range with triple shafts and moulded capping,
end stacks to parallel wings. Interior: East wing has an oak newel stair
of c.1650 with vase-shaped balusters, re-used C17 wainscot panelling in south
room of west wing and upstairs one room in east wing has early C17 decorative
panelling and another in west wing plain panelling; roof of east wing and
