I

Fortified tower and extension. Probably early C15 with C16 alterations and late C17 extension. Tower has thick red sandstone rubble walls with flush quoins, now under gabled red sandstone slate roof with small banded red sandstone chimney stacks. Extension of dark-pink coursed sandstone rubble walls with flush cream sandstone quoins and eaves cornice, on chamfered plinth. Welsh slate roof with bottom courses of sandstone slate; banded red sandstone chimney stacks. Rectangular tower of 2 storeys over basement, with lower 2-storey, 4-bay extension. Tower has basement loops; the other small original windows at various levels have been blocked and replaced by 2- and 3-light late C16 stone-mullioned windows under hoodmoulds. Extension has central C20 door in chamfered C17 surround under drip mould. 2-light stone-mullioned windows under drip moulds. Interior of the tower is thought to be of some interest but unable to gain access at the time of survey. Small single-storey additions to tower are not of interest.
