of a larger (C17) window, some cambered openings. Sashes and casements, the
doorway is Gothic stone arch, with a C20 boarded door and narrow side windows,
and above it is a shield with armorial devices. The rear elevation has
exposed flint walls with brick dressings, (to the rear of the hipped roofed west
wing and outshot to the former hall), the east wing gable being roughcast with
a coupled stone-framed upper light. The west elevation (the side of the west
wing) has a stone-framed upper window and a massive attached tapered stack.
The east elevation has early C19 sashes and a C20 ½-glazed door within a wide
