Red brick, 5 bay, 2 storey plus 3 dormers.

Date apparently end of 17th century; there is said to be a pane in an upper window inscribed 16--.
Yellow brick east extension of 18th century.
Listed Grade II*, see (S2), but in very poor condition; present owners beginning restoration, say they do not know why the OS refer to it as restored as it never seems to have received attention before, but it may be connected with [1] who lived here and claimed it stood on the site of a medieval monastic grange and a Civil War horse barracks.
