Full description

Brick building with off-centre and east gable stacks.
Said to date from 1601 which fits general style, but east gable wall in flint, with its stack, is probably a later addition connected with reordering of house, pehaps in mid 17th century.
Early 19th century alterations to windows etc and extension.
See report (S1) and architect's drawings (S2) in file.
