|Type of record:||Building|
There is some evidence that this post medieval hall was built around an earlier building. When the stucco was removed in 1975 it revealed original window arches and some possible early 17th century brickwork. This was covered up in the 19th century by a Georgian brick façade of two storeys and five bays. There is a later extension to the west. Inside there is a fine panelled drawing room.
