West elevation is 2-storeyed, with 3 large windows at upper floor, 2 small windows at ground/basement

and wide centre opening indicating industrial use - possibly

storage. On each gable, a fireplace at each level and axial stacks

built of squared rubble; also off-centre wall-head stack at west

(its upper stage in brick) above fireplace on principal (ie upper)

floor level. Low wing on south gable is also roofless.
