Full Description

The Mansion House is a pre-1650 Elizabethan house that has been divided in to two. (1) A grade II listed house dating to the early 18th century. It is built of coursed squared gritstone with quoins, coped gables with moulded kneelers, intermediate and gable end brick stacks, and has a welsh slated roof with stone slated eaves. It is of two storeys and attics, three bays, with attic windows in tall gabled dormers. It formerly had stacked two-light flush mullioned windows, which now survive in the gabled dormers, with glazing bar casements. The first floor windows, now with mullions removed, have 20th century casements in flush surrounds. The ground floor windows have been much altered; those to the north end are a pair of tall, stone framed openings with fixed lights. Between the windows and the doorway, is a two-light flush mullioned window with Gothic glazing bars. The window to the south end has an altered quoined surround and a 20th century frame. There is an off-centre doorway with a plain stone surround and a 20th century door. There is a long two-storey crosswing to the rear, with coped gables, brick chimneys, and two glazing bar sashes to the central first floor of the south elevation. A former barn, now an outbuilding, lies to the west end with ventilation slits to the upper parts of walling. (2)
