Roughcast brick encapsulating timber frame; slate roof. Long hall range, formerly open to roof, in 4 or 5 framed bays with cross-wing added to left in C17; twin-gabled range to rear on right is probably also C17, but may be earlier;late C19 gabled range projecting to front on right. 2 storeys.

Open lean-to supported on brick pillars between gabled ranges has windows beneath to left and right (latter infilled) of C17 nail-studded plank door with fleur-de-lys painted strap hinges, which marks position of original cross passage. Prominent integral lateral stack with top rebuilt in late C19 or early C20 brick to front wall of hall range immediately to left of left gabled range and large extruded external stack with C20 shaft to back wall of hall range. Twin-gabled range to rear has integral end stack to right gable; C20 stack to left of right gabled range in angle with hall range. Late C19 brick lean-to to left of left gabled range. Interior. Several C17 chamfered - ceiling beams to ground-floor rooms and timber frame in right wall of cross-passage. Repositioned staircase (possibly originally of open-well type) has late C17 barleysugar balusters, moulded handrail and carved decoration to newels and risers; C17 rectangular oak panelling below is also not in situ. Parts of collar and tie beam trusses of hall range exposed on first floor but more visible in roof space with extensive smoke blackening towards right end, especially around possible former louvre at junction between hall range and left gable of twin-gabled rear range. Through purlins and straight windbraces. There is no smoke blackening in roof to left of cross-passage suggesting that this part has always had a first floor and was probably the service end. Collar and tie beam trusses also to left gabled range (C17 cross-wing).
