Part of late C16 house and attached garden wall. Red brick in Flemish stretcher
bond. 2 walls remain, facing NW and SW, with 2 external stacks on the latter.
Formerly of 2 storeys with attic. The gable end facing NW has on the ground and
first floors an original window of 5 lights, with ovolo-moulded jambs, mullions
and transom, square head and moulded label, blocked. In the attic gable there
is one original window of 3 lights with ovolo-moulded jambs and mullions, square
head and label. Diagonal pinnacle on gable. The SW elevation has on the ground
floor a transomed window of 2 lights and 2 on the first floor, with similar
detail, and an altered stair window at half-height. Central doorway with
4-centred arched head, blocked. On the inside of the same wall there is a

upper part of the S corner have been demolished in recent years, with consent.
Extending NW from the NW corner, and integrated with it, a garden wall approx. 6
metres long, 2 metres high, including one gateway, with a plinth of cut brick
