- II

House. Probably C15 origin with later additions and alterations. Timber framed and plastered. Red plain tiled roofs, hipped to single storey left extension, gabled dormer to left range, gabled and jettied crosswing to right. Red brick chimney stack to left and 3 attached diagonal shafts to left of gabled crosswing. One storey and attics on 2 storey. 2 window range to first floor. 3 range to ground floor of C20 leaded casements. C20 panelled door to left of crosswing. Of complex plan, with sparse dating evidence. The main ground floor fireplace has mantel beam dated 1577. The jambs to the jettied crosswing fireplace appear to be early C16, the frame appears earlier. The main range roof originally had a crown post on a slightly cambered tie beam with arched bracings, probably mid C15. The west end partition appears to relate to an earlier aisled hall. The west hipped roof structure seems to have been a service wing. There are two C16 panelled doors, also near the main chimney stack a void large enough to act as a hiding hole for a man. RCHM 14.
