Manor house, c.1300 and early C16, altered in C18 and C20. Timber framed,
plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 2-bay crosswing aligned NW-SE,
c.1300, of a hall house to the SW of which the remainder has been demolished.
On its site, a 2-storey range of 4 bays, early C16. Internal chimney stacks
in crosswing, C17, and two in main range, C16 and C18. Aspect SE. C19
extensions to rear. 2 storeys. The SE elevation was jettied along its whole
length, now underbuilt. One 6-panel door, one 4-panel door with the upper
panels glazed, both with tented leaded canopies with scalloped edges. 4 double-
hung sash windows of 8 lights on ground floor, 5 on first floor, C18, with many
panes of crown glass. Continuous roof, hipped at the NE end. The interior
has jowled posts, chamfered beams with step stops, plain joists of horizontal

2 reproduction Tudor doorheads, and at the head of the stairs, C16 pierced
balusters. The roof of the NE crosswing has a moulded octagonal crownpost with
wide straight braces, c.1300. The main range also has a crownpost roof, re-
using many of the smoke-blackened components of the roof of the medieval hall.
