eyebrow casement dormer. An axial chimnmey of C17/C18 red brick. Mainly mid

cambered tie beam, and beyond it is a half-bay containing the original front
cross-entry doorway with 4-centred arched head. Some heavy 1st floor joists
in the cross-entry; other floors have C17 on-edge joists. An inserted C17
chimney in the cross-entry with lintelled open fireplace to hall, and a later
one backing onto it. The service end was extended to left in C17, formerly
with a half-hipped roof. A further cell was added to right in C18 or C19.
Various C20 extensions.
