Full description

Red brick house of five bays, two storeys, with dormers above the end bays only. Central door. Wooden-cross windows.
Pantile roof with low shaped gables bearing central chimneys. Late 17th century. Courtyard flanked on north by red brick outbuildings with round-headed doors. Barn to south. These apparently later, 18th century. Excellent condition.
E. Rose (NAU), 4 November 1981.

(S1) in file deals with attached farm buildings though these do not appear to be of great interest. (S2) attaches the name Colby Hall to a group of buildings more or less on the site of the present Banningham Hall Farm, but as the buildings of Colby Hall are also marked, without a name, this seems to have been a printer's error.
E. Rose (NLA), 6 July 1995.
