lower one vaulted. Pierced strapwork parapet and corner pinnacles with strapwork
panels and spiral chimney columns with cut-finials. Cut finials to saddle-stones.
Five bays, arcaded (part blocked) with jewel-motif imposts, centre larger with
original panelled door having radial panelling in the tympanum. The side arcades
had flat balustrades (blocked). Steps up to small stone balustraded balcony on
