Notes about this historic site

1 Farmhouse and attached walls. An irregular house, formerly rectangular or half H shaped with later wings. The south or principal front, with three gables, is cemented, and externally there are no original features. The house contains an excellent early 17th century well-staircase, of which the newels have panelled heads carved with figures of animals, the balustrade consisting of one panel to each flight, each pierced with scrolled strap ornament, and the strings housing the steps with foliage and grotesques. This staircase was probably by the same craftsman who executed that of New Hall, Sutton Coldfield.
2 One room is lined with 17th century panelling.
