Full description

Farmhouse. Around 1800. Gault brick main wing, brick and flint service wing. Black pantile roofs. T-plan. Two storeys and three bay façade of sash windows with glazing bars beneath skewback arches.
For further information see (S1).
A. Cattermole (NLA), 3 March 2006.

(S2) states that there is an extant round house (animal engine house) of 1870 attached to the farmhouse. However (S3) shows immediately north of the house a building with the characteristic half-polygonal projection; but this building is no longer on current mapping. Has the engine house gone or were there two?
E. Rose (NLA), 28 November 2006.
