Large squared sandstone in watershot coursing, with quoins, rebuilt part of smaller masonry also watershot and with quoins; graduated stone slate roof. Two bays, south gable to road (this end formerly continued to south, but rebuilt in C19), with short wing on west side (this demolished during survey, for rebuilding). Two storeys; east front has at ground floor a recessed king-mullioned window of 8 lights with ovolo-and-fillet mullions and hoodmould, and at 1st floor 2 similarly recessed 3-light windows; wall to the left rebuilt, with sashed window at ground floor; C19 cottage added at right hand end; C19 chimneys at left gable and junction. South gable wall has altered or inserted door; short west wing (before demolition) had in the gable a large moulded depressed-arched doorway near the right hand corner, a blocked doorway near the left corner, at 1st floor a blocked opening with a hoodmould and a small chamfered opening to the left, and a wide chimney on the gable; and there was a lean-to addition in the re-entrant angle to the left. Interior: altered, but building work in progress exposed in the partition wall to the wing the remains of a triple-arched structure, with a wide segmental-headed fireplace in the centre, a semi-circular arched doorway to the left (in line with the former outer doorway) and part of a similar arch to the right; former wing likely to have been a firehood incorporating the principal entrance. Reference RCHM esp. pp.12-13 and 171-2. (Note: similar triple arches at Moorfell Farmhouse, Hurstwood, q.v.).
