tiers of windows have stringcourse of stone breaking over as hoodmould. West
gable end with stepped triplet of lancets under relieving arch on 1st floor,
ground floor blind with crucifix pattern in diapering. Chimneybreast with high

by contract: red brick bands and eaves cornices, buff terracotta segmental window
heads to east, 2 east gables have eaves of red brick, with inset roundel of herringbone
buff brick recessed in red brick of gable apex. 2 north gables with straight-headed
