Weatherboarded and plastered timber frame and brick plinth. Roman pantile roof with gabled ends, hipped over midstrey and corrugated sheet steel over outshuts. Plan: 7 bays. The centre 3 bays open to the roof, the 2 bay ends originally floored with chambers over; the W end 2 bays are wider. The floors removed and a midstrey built on the S front to east of centre probably in C18. Later outshuts on the S side. Exterior: Single storey (1993). N front: Weatherboarded on right, plastered and weatherboarded on left and with large cart entrance to left of centre with plank double doors. S elevation, plastered and on left weatherboarded, weatherboarded hipped roof midstrey to right of centre and outshuts to left and right. Interior: Open to roof and with no partitions (1993). Timber frame is largely intact. Wall-posts, sole and wall-plates, midrail and close- studding with some tension braces. Curved braces to tie-beams, 2 tiers of side purlins, tenoned (butt) lower purlins and upper purlins with curved wind-braces and clasped above the collars; later ridge purlin. Several diamond mullion windows rebated for glass including large first floor windows in bays 1 and 2 at east end. No part of the roof is smoke-blackened. Note: The manor of Ringshall was inherited by Sir Thomas Gresham from his mother, widow of Sir Richard Gresham and it is thought that Sir Thomas might have built this building.
