and Welsh slate roofs with sandstone and brick stacks. Rectangular plan

an early C20 window of six segmentally headed lights to right-hand gable.
Entry in ledged door to central gable. The two left gables have their
tops decorated with oak concave sided lozenges each brace of which has a
spur. The right-hand gable has matching patterns painted on brickwork.
Attached to left side is a small lean-to. On the right-hand return of
the right gable is a recessed lower range with its front masked by corrugated
iron lean-to and a sandstone and brick stack to its right gable. South

Glazed off-centre porch, also early C20, contains ledged door with strap
hinges, possibly C17. Interior inaccessible at time of re-survey (November
