Manor House. Late C15/early C16. Partly rebuilt/extended c1690 for Colonel J. Graham. Wet-dashed rubble on plinth. Graduated slate roofs with projecting eaves. Diagonally-set rendered chimneys. Mainly 2 storeys with attics. Asymmetrical plan. Western block is oldest surviving part. Central block and eastern cross-wing added; plaster wall panel (originally on ceiling?) gives initials I. & A.B. (for James & Agnes Bellingham?) and date 1538 but details are identical to late C16 plasterwork at Levens Hall and date should probably read 1583. Symmetrical 4-bay east elevation has part-glazed central door with mullioned and transomed 3-light window, under hoodmould, to either side; four 3-light windows above. Windows throughout probably C19 (with majority of decorative leading replaced in C20) except for 2 original stone-mullioned windows to south elevation of western block: Ground floor window has 2 segment-headed lights, 1st floor window has 3 ogee-headed lights under hoodmould. Interior mainly C19 with some earlier studded plank doors and a C17 closed-string staircase with turned balusters, square newels, and moulded handrail.
