existing building is not clear. At the rear of the right-hand cross-wing
is a blocked 3-light attic window with brick mullions. Inside, the
right-hand room has chamfered and stopped ceiling beams with later applied
mouldings. The stair has one straight flight with closed string, moulded
handrail and turned and fluted balusters. On the 1st floor is a room in
the central part of the house with C18 raised and fielded panelling, the

the right-hand cross-wing is said to incorporate a garderobe and the
left-hand cross-wing is said to have a roof with curved principals.
