Red brick in Flemish bond with pantile roof having brick coped
gables and kneelers with gable stacks. Parallel ranges. 2 storey

The front was originally of 5 bays and the blocked openings can
be seen. The 3 bay alterations date to C19. Central C20 half
glazed door with large hood, flanked by single margin light

roof has largely been renewed in C19.
