with wooden lintels; thatch and old plain-tile roofs with rubble and brick
stacks. 2-unit plan extended to 4 units, plus rear wing. 2 storeys. Central bays
of front are thatched, and have small 2-light casements flanking a central
rounded stair projection with a tiny window. Tiled 2-window range to right has

this bay and the earlier section. Rear of thatched bays are largely obscured by
a thatched C20 rear wing. Interior not inspected.
