II Dairy and bakehouse range, built c.1600 adjacent to the service wing of Tudor Grange (then known as Watering Farmhouse). Used in part as a farm office at date of survey.

Two storeys. Timber-framed; infilled along the front with herringbone bricknogging, probably introduced in late C19/early C20; the rear has plastered wattle-and-daub infill panels. The close-studding has unusual paired serpentine braces at each corner. The ground storey walling was mostly rebuilt C19 in red brick. Plain tiled roof, hipped at the left-hand (bakehouse) end.

In the bakehouse is a chimney of red brick, intruded in C17/C18. The upper floor retains all ten original diamond-mullioned windows, most being of four lights. One has an internal boarded sliding shutter, and most have battened louvres applied externally. Various C19 casements at ground storey. A good original moulded plank entrance door faces the service wing of the house. The two bay bakehouse at the left-hand end has a lightly smoke-blackened roof and must formerly have been unfloored. The two bay centre cell was probably a dairy with granary above (the upper room still has grain-bins). Open trusses have strongly-cambered tie-beams with cranked arch-braces. Good wind-braced clasped-purlin roof. The upper part of the building is almost totally unaltered and is an excellent example of its type.
