This house is thought to be built around a late 16th or early 17th century strong house. The 18th and 19th century alterations and extensions hide the earlier parts of the building and no early features are visible. An even earlier tower is recorded at Cornhill and remnants of a building foundation north of the house have been proposed as its site. This is a Grade II* Listed Building protected by law.

Reference number:N774
Historical period: Post Medieval (1540 to 1901)
Legal status:Listed Building
