C17 wide spaced balusters survive to the upper parts, shaped handrail survives
intact, otherwise altered in mid-C19. Ground floor room of west wing has richly

an excellent example of the period, half-panelled and with many original fittings.
One room in rear wing is fully panelled with moulded late C17 panelling. More
moulded beams to west wing in upper rooms. The roof structure of the C17 parts
is solid late C17 indicating that the rear wing post-dates the west wing; in the
former one curved collar.
