Development History
22 October 2012: External inspection finds the building house, with service wings, in generally a poor condition. There is minor roof slippage and the flashings may not be effective. Rainwater goods are in poor condition with much leakage from gutters and downpipes. Overall the walls are in fair condition but there is evidence of dampness on walls and one section of render has been lost at the West chimney. Maintenance is required to timber windows and doors. Neither the main house nor the service wings and ancilliary buildings are in use at this time.
