Roughly T-shaped plan; former open hall apparently of 4 framed bays with cross-wing to east, probably also of 4 framed bays; the latter was re-built in early C17 when an external stack was also added at the upper (west) end of hall and the whole floored over; gabled range in angle between hall and cross-wing on north side probably contemporary with re-building of cross-wing, late C19 brick lean-to below. 2 storeys and gable-lit attic to cross-wing; south side: mid-C20 casements with mid-C19 segmental heads to either side of roughly central plank door under mid-C20 gabled brick porch, one range of similar windows to each floor of cross-wing; large external stepped stack to west gable end and lateral external stack to cross-wing, small ridge stack re-built in mid-C20 red brick at east end of hall range. Interior: top part of plank and muntin screen dividing lower end of hall from former screens passage visible upstairs; staircase with moulded handrail but balusters removed also at lower end of hall; late C17 bolection moulded fireplace on first floor serving external stack at west end of hall, several C17 panelled doors with cock's head hinges and contemporary oak panelling, some with wheatsheaf moulding; 2 chamfered spine beams in ground floor room at lower end of hall; roof structure not-examined, but several of the trusses are said to be smoke-blackened, although now of butt- purlin, collar and tie beam construction. The house was formerly moated and the foundations of a stone-built chapel are said to have been uncovered in the adjacent field to south-east in 1970s. V.C.H., VIII (1968), p.260.
