A small area of roof has been replaced in concrete pantiles. The main block was probably constructed with a ground floor of brick and timber-framing over.

All joists are of small square section. The contemporary stacks have been much rebuilt but remnants survive of the original
fireplaces including one in the cellar. 2 tight winder stairs and continuous attic storey is original feature. HISTORY: the building was early known as Wrenches and thought to have been rebuilt c1570; the structure could be of this date.
