* Section Of The Listing Referring To The History - When referring to the copy of the architectural listing, one has to say that the history of the building is absolutely fascinating and mentions the following; The rear section of the property contains two bays of the original Aisled Hall circa 1300, the rear wall of the hall stood further to the south.

The chimney stack with chamfered limestone blocks was added in the 16th century and there are remains of an early 17th century wall painting in a black and white design of formalised flowers set in surrounds. On the ground floor there is a wealth of exposed studwork with evidence of an early mullion window, prior to the front of the building being moved closer to the road.
