House, probably early C17th with remains of late medieval timber framing and C19th alterations. Sandstone with slate roof. 2 storeys with attic. Main range of squared rubble, of 2 bays having windows with plain reveals. The door, between bays, has plain reveals. Chimney on left-hand gable and to left of door. At the east side is a cross-wing of squared sandstone blocks. The main part of its facade is of one bay, having paired windows within a plain stone surround, separated by a square mullion. Against its left-hand (west) return wall is a lean-to stair outshut having a 2-light mullioned window with outer chamfer, inner hollow chamfer, and hood. Above is a stair window. The left-hand return wall of the outshut has a 2-light mullioned window. Chimney on front gable of cross-wing. Inside, the east room of the main range has fragments of timber framing exposed in its rear wall. 2 studs have a later timber doorway set between them. A corner post abutting the cross-wing is cut to receive 2 doorheads at right angles to each other. A chamfered stone doorway with Tudor-arched head leads into the cross-wing. A second similar doorway has been uncovered within the stair outshut. Within the 1st floor bedroom and attic above the room with exposed timber framing is a tie beam above floor level and a king post of narrow section, possible once an open truss of a timber-framed hall. The building will be described by Watson, R.C. & McClintock, M.E., in Over Wyre Historical Journal, 1984-86 ( forthcoming ).
