indented spandrels, stone jambs and mullions: these have diagonal leaded lights
under the roofed part. A C15 doorway at the north end and 2 similar doorways
on the west side, all with pointed arches. The 'Gothick' restoration features
include a pointed arched doorway at the south side and next to it a 3-light
wooden window above a 3-light mullioned and transomed window both with pointed
lights. An attached chimney breast has a later top, with stone dressings, end-
ing in coupled brick octagonal Tudor-style flues, another stack is missing its
top. The 2-storeyed Tudor brick porch projects at the west end, being linked
to the east wing by the rear part of the C18 work. The front has a gable above
a (restored) brick oriel, a small recessed panel, and a 4-centred arch set
within a rectangular frame. The two outer corners have octagonal buttresses
with small pointed tops, a moulding at the top and intermediately, and a high
plinth. The red tile roof merges into the later part: the walls are red brick
English bond. South front: C18. A symmetrical facade of 2 storeys and attic,
7 windows. Slate roof. Large tapering chimney stacks to each end gable, 4 flat

upper walls, a 2 storeyed bay with coupled sashes and narrow side windows, on
the east elevation a projecting bay on brackets (with a hipped roof) above a
ground-floor sash window. The rear part of the main block has a 3-gabled form
and more modern units extend northwards from 2 of them,one (with hipped roof)
linking to the east wing, the other a short gabled wing on the west side
