Notes about this historic site

1 A house dated to 1593. An excellent example of local timber framing, including herringbone work, it has a modern date of 1593 on the porch. Some of the internal details suggest an earlier origin. The house is a long building with a projecting cross wing at the north end. North of the porch the whole wall has been replaced by 18th century brickwork and painted with false timbering. The porch is local cream sandstone. The side walls are pierced by small square ornamental lights, the southern of which may be medieval and has tracery forming a quatrefoil. Below the porch window and the windows of the north wing are curved timber fleur de lys. The forecourt has stone gateposts with moulded capitals and ball-heads.
