Farmhouse. Probably early C17 with considerable later additions and alterations.
Red brick with yellow brick headers concealing timber frame, slate roofs.
2-bay hall with cross-wing to north projecting to east, extended and converted
in early C19 when a south wing was added and additions made to rear. 2 storeys
with attics to gables; framing: now encased in early C19 brick except to
decayed plastered right-hand gable end and rear gable of cross-wing, where
it is too fragmentary to determine type, exposed wall-plate and double purlin
ends; windows all glazing bar sashes (mainly horned) with gauged heads;
single ranges to front gables (attic right blind and painted in imitation)
with one range to left of hall and a window above entrance in angle between
hall and cross-wing, 6-panel door with panelled reveals and rectangular over-
light under lean-to porch; 2 prominent external lateral stacks to right-
hand end with ridge stack to left of centre. C19 additions to rear comprise
gabled ranges at right-angles to left and right with 2-storey catslide outshut
between. Interior: C17 wainscot panelling in cross wall of cross-wing and
upstairs in one of bedrooms; spine beam in room to left of entrance with
carved decoration, probably C17; upper open cruck truss in centre of hall
range enabling roof space to be used as attic. V.C.H. VIII (1968), p.258.
