Unremarkable building of 1870, built when the old hall (NHER 2102) to the south was demolished, it nevertheless contains various reused items; a fireplace with pairs of ?Jacobean standing figures in wood (and other sections that may be Jacobean but may be copies) and on external walls various masonry fragments, some of which appear to be medieval cusped tracery.
