Manor Cottage and House attached to

east end coursed iron stone rubble, extended in brick and with

probably wholy or partly 2 storeys and open to the roof and
converted into a house in the C18. The circa C17 extension on
the right (east) end appears to have been extended again and
converted into a 2 room plan cottage in the C18. Rear wings

left and 1 storey and attic 2 window cottage extension on
right. C20 casements. Late C20 conservatory on right of
original range and blocked central doorway on right hand
range. The original range has ashlar buttress at the corners
with weathering and a carved stone gable kneeler. C20
gable-ended brick wing at rear of original range. INTERIOR:
Original range, the smaller right hand room has some large
unchamfered joists exposed and large fireplace with cambered
chamfered timber bressumer; and 5-bay roof with large tie-beam
trusses, straight collars, clasped side purlins and complete
set of coupled rafters. The cottage extension has chamfered
axial beam in right hand room with runout stops, large
fireplace with boxed-in bressumer; attics ceiled but large
waney side purlins exposed; winder stairs between rooms.
