Late C20 fenestration to one window opening at each storey and to the east wall. However in the west wall of the crosswing there are ovolo moulded mullions to an original window opening. Two, three-light windows with larger lights and unmoulded mullions are on the first floor of the east wall. Window of two lights in west wall, at the rear. Now partly obscured. C19 main range is a rebuild of the original hall. Brick, painted and tiled. Two storeys. Doorway, inserted opposite the stack.

Roofs have been mostly rebuilt, including that of the crosswing although a pair of rafters remains. Clasped side purlin roof. Arch braced ties and jowled posts to first floor chamber. Smaller hearth to this room. Framing of varied scantling, and generally typical of later C17. Original roof over stair turret.
