east-south-east. One storey and attic. South elevation has three windows,
early C20 gabled dormers with 2-light casements. Beneath them, three glazing
bar sashes. Late C20 glazed porch to left of centre conceals late C17 or early
C18 door with six panels. Small lean-to C20 porch in -breeze block in front of
right hand side. To left is a late C18 to early C19 brick catslide lean-to
enveloping a former end stack. West elevation has, above the lean-to, two
gabled dormers with casements, probably C18, glazed with quarries. Attached
to the left is a brick mid-C19 granary and stable block. Interior has pegged
king-post trusses to south range. Catslide roofed western extension has five
bays and half-trusses each with one vertical post tied back to the bottom of
