timber porch hood on shaped brackets; 8-panel fielded door.
Stone plinth and stone upper floor plain band. Small Gothic
doorway in screen wall to right. North end: C19 brick gable.
Two attic casements with stone lintels. South end: partially
ashlar gable with large formerly projecting chimney stack now flush

as the mill owner's house for Ryeford Mill, records of which show a
site dating back to the medieval period.
