Single light over fire-window inserted c.1980; two 3-light windows. Attached to left hand return wall is single cell extension c.1980 out of sympathy with the building.

Interior: Division wall between wing and housebody has 2 doorways with roll- moulded surround to either side of the former dais end of the original single storey hall the roofline of which is still visible. This end is now altered to form the smoke bay and retains its bressumer and reeded spine beams. Parlour has fine fireplace with basket arch, cyma moulded surround and deeply sunken spandrels. The eastern spine beam has a groove to its soffit and it would appear that formerly service rooms were divided from the parlour. C.F. Stell, p.114, 263, 276, 283.
