flints with long and short ashlar quoins. Hipped tiled roof. The ground floor
has one window of 3 cinquefoil-headed lights with stone mullions . Above is
a double stone window with 2 trefoil-headed lights. The centre portion is
C19 with an older core of 2 storeys red brick with tiled roof. The north-east
projection is C18. Two storeys red brick. Two crow-stepped gables. Two
sash windows with glazing bars intact stringcourse and cornice. To the west
of the south-east part is a further portion dating from the C17-Cl8 of which
the ground floor is faced with red brick and the first floor is tile hung.
Simple doorcases. The interior contains a late Cl5 wooden ceiling and remains
of a C16 fireplace. The floor joist to the hall may be original. The Rev
