House. Late medieval, drastic restoration in 1950's. Timber
frame roughcast but with framing exposed in 2 jetties on front
(W). Walling of ground floor replaced by plastered brickwork.
Steep old red tiled roofs hipped with gablets. An open hall house
with 2 crosswings. The jettied ends of these have close-studding
with curved tension braces. 2-bay hall was entered by cross-
passage within N wing where 2 short screens form a vestigial
spere-truss. A stair rose at the rear of the N (service) wing
and the 2-light window to light it survives. The W front now has
3 C20 2-light casement windows on the ground floor, a similar
window in each jettied wing, a small upper window under the eaves
in the centre and a mullioned window next the N wing. Large
external chimney on S end. The N wing has a simple collar-rafter
roof; the narrower S wing has a plain crown-post roof with 2-way
struts. In the partition at the upper (S) end of the hall are
pegholes for the original bench. (RCHM Typescript).
