floor level and one to ground floor right. Half-glazed door to right of

3 gabled bays with a first floor band broken by C19 glazing bar sashes
to left and centre, right hand bay at first floor level is blind but
the band is broken here too, so there was probably a window here
formerly. Small central sash at ground level occupying the position of
the main C19 entrance, flanked by 2 very large glazing bar casements.

gabled bays of main range set back to right. Blind windows in the
