Brick chimney stack to south east gable end. C19 two light wood casement windows. Inside the hall range the former hall or kitchen has a wide fireplace with chamfered lintel on simple scroll moulded stops. Main beams and joists have plain chamfers. In the fireplace is a small salt cupboard with original hinges and simple scratched ornament . The scullery has plain chamfered beams and formerly had open fireplace. in the west wing the two ground floor rooms were probably parlours, ogee moulded chamfers with draw stops to main beams. In the north east corner of the south west wing is an anglo stone fireplace with moulded 5 centred arch and ogee moulded lintel. Similar lintels in north west ground and 1st floor rooms probably belonged to similar formerly open fireplaces. This wing has a dog leg staircase with oak treads and risers of mid C17 date, the upper flight retaining shaped balusters, square moulded newel posts with ball finals and handrail. The roof trusses of the wing have cambered tie beams with straight struts.
