Dower house, originally hunting lodge. Early C16 and late C16. Ironstone ashlar
and brick laid in irregular English bond, brick lateral and end stacks. H-plan.
The house consists of two ranges, the earlier front range of brick with
ironstone dressings and later back range, completing the H, of ironstone. The
front range has a polygonal brick tower in the middle of the long side with
first floor moulded brick and stone string with deep hollow moulding, and
battlemented parapet. Diaper patterning to brickwork with flared headers.
Arch-mullion windows of 2, 3 and 4-lights. Ironstone quoins. Large ironstone
projecting end stack to left with base of twisted brick flues. The stone range
behind has similar arch-mullion windows and stack. Ruined by mid C18 and some
C19 repair work. The earliest brick structure in the county (Pevsner). Now in a
very poor state of repair and smothered with ivy. A Scheduled Ancient Monument.
