Ground floor has early C20 fixed windows with leaded lights. The left rear wing has 3 brick stacks and late C19 windows, the right return has C20 windows, the rear right wing has hipped roofs to a 2-storey and an added single-storey range. INTERIOR: the original 4-bay arched collar-beam roof structure with mortices for threaded purlins remains under a C19 higher-pitched gabled cladding. A large room to the first floor of the rear left wing has high coved ceiling, exposed studding to party wall of main block and panelled shutters. Ground floor is altered except for one chamfered beam to the rear left. C19 laundry equipment remains in the rear wing. HISTORY: the first meeting of the Wolborough Iron Mining Company is said to have taken place here about 1872. Augustus Smith, a great benefactor, identified the brown rock of Firestone Hill between Wolborough and Askerswell as haematite or iron ore. The Wolborough Iron Mine subsequently produced 1,240 tons of haematite during the years 1872-73. (Jones R: A Book of Newton Abbot: Callington: 1979-: 31).
