The front elevation was faced in hammer-dressed stone in c.1600 and the rear and sides faced in brick in the later C17, C18 and C19. The hall is open to the roof whereas the crosswings each have 2 storeys. Graduated stone slate roof. Quoins and projecting plinth. 6-light mullion and double- transom hall window with hoodmould. Door adjacent to right crosswing has chamfered surround and obtuse-angled lintel. Between the two are a 3 and 4-light window (one on each floor) which may be later insertions. 4-light mullion and transom window (Cl9) to right crosswing which is gabled and a 3-light window on first floor. The left crosswing is also gabled and has 3 and 6-light windows, one with a transom. Central ridge chimney stack. Two powerful chimney stacks with brattishing (c.1600) dominate the north elevation. The rear of the north wing is in brick on a stone lower storey and includes a window with brick hoodmould. The rear of the hall reveals a principal post within the brickwork. Interior: Only one of the 3 originalcruck trusses survives In the south wing, it has a tie beam and wind bracing to the purlins. Arch-braced and king-post roof trusses support the hall roof which has curved wind bracing. The north wing retains part of the wall framing, chamfered stone fireplaces one with an uncarved shield on its lintel, a braced cambered tie-beam roof truss and a ceiling with moulded timber members. The house has had a particularly varied and interesting development during its long history exhibiting different types of construction and technology as well as planning.
