Hall. Thinly-coursed rubble limestone, ashlar dressings and lantern, stone

side has chamfered jambs and Tudor-arched lintel with triangular extrados.
Continuous lst-floor dripmould beneath small double-chamfered, 2-light mullioned
window with remains of latticed iron casement. Similar windows on alternate faces,
one without mullion. Chamfered oversailing band beneath eaves. Hipped roof with
octagonal lantern having plain stone pillars to hipped ashlar roof.

Interior: ashlar piers to each internal angle dividing nesting holes said to number
