Good red brick stables to west. Probable date around 1840. Good condition.
E. Rose (NAU), 2 August 1977.

This must in fact be pre 1838 as shown on (S1) not on (S2).

Course of main road altered. Hall stands on line of old road. Parish was enclosed in 1802. Built at same time, or later?
E. Rose (NAU), 9 January 1985.

An 'older section' was pulled down around 1920.
Information from the owner.

[1] states the house was indeed built soon after 1802, on the site of an existing small house, but the 'older section' mentioned was in fact later, a servants wing of around 1830.
E. Rose (NAU), 28 January 2000.

Inspection October 2012.
A good Regency building with Palladian low pavillions flanking the façade most effectively to the garden/ south elevation. Associated with the hall are the park boundary walls which are almost complete. See (S3).
S. Heywood (HES), 18 October 2012.
