- II

Former farmhouse. C16 and later. Part 2 storeys and attics, part 1½ storeys: a main lobby-entrance range with 2 wings of different dates at the rear. Timber-framed; rendered on sides and rear; main front faced in late C19 red brick, laid in English bond, which is tied into the frame by iron rods, the ends finished with projecting knobs. Plaintiled roofs. An internal chimney- stack with a large plain rebuilt red brick shaft. On the upper floor, one 2- light and 3 3-light casement windows with a single horizontal bar to lights; on the ground floor, 3 3-light mullion-and-transome type casements, all in deep reveals. Recessed entrance door with 6 sunk panels; panelled linings to surround. The 2-bay ground-floor room to the right of the stack has very heavy timbers: wide chamfer and curved stops to main beam, plain unchamfered joists set on edge, an open fireplace with a plain timber lintel. The wallplate of this range has been doubled, and the roof renewed. A small wing at the rear has a complete 4-light diamond-mullioned window in the gable end and reversed braces on the upper floor. A longer, 1½ storey service wing, with clay pantiles and an internal chimney-stack, has typical early C18 framing: bisected studs, primary braces, narrow joists set on edge; roof with stepped butt purlins.

Images of England was a photographic record of every listed building in England, created as a snap shot of listed buildings at the turn of the millennium. These photographs of the exterior of listed buildings were taken by volunteers between 1999 and 2008. The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
