At right end is a possibly C18 narrow timber-framed window. Roof is gable-ended. Interior: Main rooms have good early C17 features. In left room the plainly- finished crossbeams were obviously intended for plaster cladding. The fireplace indicates that this was a high status room. Its stone sides have been rebuilt but the lintel is original with a double ogee soffit moulding with carved acanthus leaf stops. The room to right of passage has a 3-bay ceiling. The crossbeams are soffit-chamfered with pyramid stops incised to look like leaves. The fireplace here is blocked. The stair block now contains C19 replacement staircase. Roof not inspected but structure said to have been replaced circa 1950.
