First floor, C18 window frame with C19 horned sashes with glazing bars, 3x4 panes. S elevation (has been principal frontage) 2 window range with hipped roof, lean-to outshut to E. All windows have C18 moulded frames and later sashes with glazing bars, 3x4 panes. Central C19 door of 6 panels, upper 4 now glazed with rustic porch. 2 outshut windows, C20 casements with glazing bars, 2x3 panes. E elevation, hipped roof with principal stack, C18 lean-to to N, weatherboarded with 2-light C20 casement window with glazing bars. Full length C19 brick lean-to with felt tiles, C20 door with upper glazing, 2x3 panes and 3 flush lower panels, also 3-light casement window with galzing bars, 6x3 panes.

INTERIOR: earliest block is C15, N-S range to E, stout studding, widely spaced with arched exterior bracing, unjowled storey posts and cambered tie-beams with bracket arched braces with step stopped chamfers. Wall plates with edge halved and bridled scarf joints. N end now cut back but evidence for double mullioned windows on both E and W sides of first floor, one window still intact in wall, also window sill on ground floor. Soffit tenoned flat laid joists of this period with trimming frame round later stack, over size probably for original timber-framed chimney. Also high isolated lintel beam over fireplace remains as part of the redundant framing. Later C16 insertion of stack. 3 original plastered fireplaces remain with 4 centred arches and chamfers stopped high up on jambs. Contemporary timber-framed range added to W side with stack on N end, floor joists deep sectioned with diminished haunched tenons, some replacement of joists in original block with lamb's tongue chamfer stops on principal binding joist. Stair tower also contemporary, octagonal newel post and principal bearer of landing with lamb's tongue chamfer stop. On ground floor, door inserted diagonally between stack corner and centre of stair tower, depressed 4-centred arch and lamb's tongue chamfer stops to frame. In C19 alteration N-S central corridor to front door continued at junction of the 2 earlier builds providing the symmetrical facede of the S front. In the corridor a principal post of the early block has 2 rising display braces implying that a medieval hall once ran from this 'high' end wall towards the W.
