Probably early to mid C17, extended early C19 with extensive late C20 alterations. Roughly coursed limestone rubble, more regularly coursed to C20 rebuilding; stone slate roof temporarily removed at time of resurvey. Forms basic L-plan around courtyard; main range to west with north range and short south range largely rebuilt in C19. One storey and attic. Through-passage to left of main range has chamfered 4-centred arch with dripstone and plank door with internal strap hinges to front and smaller segmental-arched doorway opposing to rear. Four 2-light chamfered segmental-arched mullion windows with hollow spandrels and dripstones, one to left and 3 to right of doorway, left with leaded latticed lights and 2 to centre with cast-iron glazing bars. Formerly a wide inserted entrance to left of right window but this removed and wall rebuilt at time of resurvey. Gabled leaded dormer in roof slope to rear and truncated bread oven to back wall. Interior. Straight-flight staircase behind doorway has half-closed string to bottom. Panelled window shutters, plank and panelled doors, C19 cast-iron fireplaces and remains of C19 laundry to main range, several of trusses and most of rafters being removed at time of resurvey. The stables are shown in an engraving by M. Burghers in White Kennett's, Parochial Antiquities of Ambrosden and Burcester (1695), opp. p.683 where they are depicted with 5 gabled full dormers to front. [2640]
