Haughton House, c.1800 or slightly earlier. Spare but not unimpressive earlier work is rather over-shadowed by wider rear addition: former tall and restrained, three storeys and basement in quoined ashlar with slightly projecting centre bay, on three-window front, a cornice and gabled ends. Porch and centre gable added at same time, 1860, as the ponderous rear wing. Icehouse, c.1800, barrel vaulted with boulder rubble front.
