with blue diaper work and C19 2-light casement window with cambered brick head.
Blocked C18 door with red and blue brick cambered head, and C19 squared bay
window projection. Inserted doorway to right of this with flat timber lintel,

floor, three 2-light wood mullioned and transomed windows, and two blocked
smaller openings, one with steeply arched brick head. Gable and axial stacks.
