Farmhouse and attached boundary wall. C18, with C19 alterations and incorporating a fragment of a late C16 house, and the surviving parts of its garden walling. Coursed squared coal measures sandstone with quoins, coped gables with moulded kneelers, Welsh slates and stone slates. L-plan, with single storey range within the angle of the two main ranges. East elevation. Two storeys, three bays, symmetrical, with stacked glazing bar sash windows in stone frames, the ground floor window to the south end having lost its glazing bars. Central doorway with moulded door surround, with dripmould above and a C19 half-glazed door. The interior contains some plank and muntin and square panelling, all in a small first floor room, and the tie beams to the roof trusses are massive cambered timbers, which are re-used. The panelling and roof trusses may have come from the earlier house on this site. Attached to the north gable wall, and extending 25 metres to the east, a part of a former external wall. The wall contains two 2-light deeply recessed chamfer mullioned openings with moulded quoined surrounds. Between the windows there is evidence of earlier openings, now blocked. To the west of the window openings, a quoined doorway, with chamfered surround and cambered lintel with shallow four-centred arch. At the west end of the wall an advanced tower, square in plan, with monopitch stone slate roof. At the base of the north wall, an arched opening and, on the west side wall, a slit window. The tower may have been a garderobe tower. Adjoining the tower, and extending 50 metres to the west, and then 50 metres to the south, a garden wall, formerly enclosing the gardens to the C16 house. The wall rises from a plain plinth, and rises to approximately 2.5 metres. The top is coped with coursed masonry, laid in courses of diminishing width giving a stepped appearance to the wall head. At the corner at the west end, there is a substantial stepped diagonal buttress, beyond which the wall extends to the south at a much reduced level.
