Many windows retain original leaded lights and vertical iron bar. Coped gables with kneelers. Chimneys have moulded bands. 2, 3 and 4-light mullioned windows and later sash windows to sides and rear. Later additions to left, later porch to right and a single storey early C18 addition to rear right. Interior: the rear right room (kitchen) has a gable-end door of studded oak with the initials IS carved on it. The room is sheltered by a plank and muntin screen and as well as a C17 well cupboard with carved doors and butterfly hinges has a bolection-moulded fire surround with coved cornice mantel. First floor cupboard with H-hinges and "MS 1692" carved at head. A well-preserved house retaining many of its original fittings. The double-depth plan is of a particularly early date for the house of yeoman farmer. W.J. Smith, "A Place in History", Pennine Magazine, Vol.6, No.3.
