Possible 16th century hall house altered in early 17th century.
A timber framed building, although many of the wall timbers have been removed.
At the west end is a large brick chimney stack with a large fireplace, in which the remains of a domed oven are visible.
Dating of building can only be provisional due to the removal of so much of the original timber frame, but this is probably a 16th century hall house, which had upper floors and a stack inserted in the early 17th century.
