and slate roof. Two storeys on plinth with brick corbelled and dentilated eaves.
Hipped roof with central broken pediment, gable over projecting centre piece, with
octagonal louvred cupola with ogee-shaped roof. Stacks to end left and to end
right. The centre piece, the former coach-house has clockface within the pedi-
ment, tripartite casement arrangement on first floor, the centre dropped, with
gauged segmental head and traceried fanlight. Ground floor with 2 gauged segmen-
tal carriage entrances on pilasters with imposts, with traceried fanlights, with
multi-paned casements and panelled door to right hand archway. Flanking wings

Although the quality of the C20 fenestration and extension is uniformly poor and
inappropriate, the openings and structure of the building remain complete and
intact, its integrity as a listable structure remains.
