stone in C17 and English garden wall bond projecting gabled crossing to right

in late C18 and has C19 and C20 window openings to right return. Left gable has
raised brick corbel band, diamond patterns and an owl hole. C19 and C20 additions

include a crosswall between the main range and crosswing, a cambered tie-beam
roof truss with inclined struts and wattle and daub infill and an ovolo-moulded
floor beam.
