- II

Formerly miller's house, now house: earlier C18 but raised, extended and remodelled mid Cl9. Pebble dashed brick, graduated Welsh slate roof, stone ridge, 2 gable and a ridge brick chimney. Developed from single-pile plan to surround 3 sides of a courtyard. 3-storey symmetrical 3-bay south front. Simple cornice and stone plinth. End bays have 12-pane sashes, those in ground storey in moulded wooden cases which break the plinth. Top storey has gabled half dormers with shaped bargeboards and containing multipaned sashes with a toplight. The central bay has door with marginal half lights and a flat hood on plain brackets and similar windows above L-shaped washed brick extensions to rear. Loose carved stone reads JB 1703 SO 1727 but this may come from the now demolished mill.

Interior: entry into central hall with moulded ceiling beams and cornice. Niche to right held organ when room used for services. 6 flat panelled doors, one in coved basket-arched recess. Room to left has roundels in the border and on beams, plaster wall panels, panelled shutters and an imported Neo-Classical fireplace. Simpler detailing in the room to right.
