A complex building of C16, in 3 main phases, forming a single range 72m long. Phase 1. 9 or 10 bays to west, probably a barn. Timber framed: south wall has intact heavy studding with mid rail. North wall rebuilt in red brick; the two easternmost bays were re-fronted in mid C16 when court hall was added to north, probably to make a symmetrical facade: diapered brickwork, 2 original 3-light upper windows in brick. Roof of double Roman tiles. To north is a C17 gabled timber porch; the east wall of the porch, enclosed by a later addition, has some old plaster decorated to resemble brickwork. 3 bays of original queen-post roof at east end, the remainder re-roofed C20. Phase 2. 3-bay court hall. North wall of red brick with diapering, some mid C20 repair; south wall timber framed. Pantiled roof. 3 brick mullion and transom windows to upper floor, 2 intact. Over a doorway, 4 C16 bricks with fools' heads, now much decayed. Upper floor structure mostly concealed. C20 roof, originally of queen-post type, the truss at the east end intact. Phase 3. Six irregular bays to east, perhaps stabling. North wall and east gable end of English bond red brick; timber framed to south, now underbuilt on ground floor. Pantiled roof. 2 storeys and attic, the latter partly removed. Various window openings to north, one intact brick window; traces of stucco quoining. South wall has several diamond-mullioned windows.
