floor bay window with panelled apron and moulded cornice. 1 window 4 panes
wide on ground floor under bay. 6 panel (flush type) door with architrave
surround and small flat moulded hood, to right hand. Long range (the Hall)
at back with roof swept down to ground floor ceiling level. 2 3 light hipped
dormers. Portion tile hung with gable to south.
Internally in entrance passage a large 6 light wooden window with cusped lights,
probably reset, late C15 and C16. Tall stone entrance arch into screens passage.

surrounds. In drawing room a fine C15 fireplace with quatrefoil panels, the
brackets and jambs partly renewed. Reset C17 panelling Part of roof structure
