a 4-centred mediaeval stone arch with chamfered jambs giving the appearance of
leading to a cellar. To the left of the arch are the remains of some ogee-heeded
cusping with a a semi-circular recess beneath which was possibly a stoup. These
remains may have been brought from elsewhere. Set in the wall beneath the arch
is a stone with the date 1689. The building is a single storey house with 2 windows
facing north and 2 windows facing east. Stone rabble with red brick window dressings
and quoins. Half hipped slate roof. Glazing bard intact. Segmental headed window
frames with round header windows within these the north side. Later trellised
