House, 1623, altered. Slobbered rubble with slate roof. Comprises 2 wings
abutting at right angles, probably added to an earlier building which has
subsequently disappeared. Both wings are of 2 storeys with attic. The
original windows had external timber lintels, plain reveals, and
ovolo-moulded wooden mullions: a few survive. The east wall of the north
block has 2 1st floor windows with timber lintels remaining. At the right
on the ground floor is a similar lintel over a blocked opening. Left-hand
gable chimney. This south gable wall has traces of blocked doorways on the
ground and 1st floors. The left-hand part of the wall is overlapped by the
adjoining wing. The right-hand (north) gable has a timber lintel over a
ground-floor door and window. On the 1st floor are 2 lintels, the
left-hand one over a blocked opening, the right-hand one over a 2-light
ovolo-moulded mullioned window. The attic has one window with
ovolo-moulded timber surround, and another blocked window. The south wall
of the south wing is of 2 bays and has modern windows with plain stone
surrounds, except at the left on the ground floor where there is a small
high opening with plain reveals. The north wall of this wing has a ground-
floor window with timber lintel and ovolo-moulded wooden surround. On the
1st floor is a 3-light window with ovolo-moulded wooden mullions.
Interior. North wing has a stone lintel above a modern fireplace, carved
with the arms of the Cansfield family and inscr[bed:'ISABEL CANSFIELD ANO
DNI 1623. On the 1st floor are timber-framed partitions with depressed
ogee doorheads. The roof of the north wing has curved principals. In the
north wall is a blocked ovolo-moulded timber cross window.
