The oldest part of this building is a two-floored range of with a tower of slightly later date at the east end. In 1890 a second extension was added running the full length of the house. The building was probably originally built as a defended stronghold to protect against attacks from the Scots. Apart from the Vicar's Pele this is the oldest standing building in Corbridge. This is a Grade I listed building protected by law.
