rebuilt shaft of C19 gault brick to left. Two C20 raking casement dormers.
Mid C20 small-pane casements and fully glazed entrance door. The cell to

Heavy exposed first floor joists of triangular section each with 4 cavettos
and a rib in the manner of c.1500. Close-studding. Late C17 or C18 clasped
purlin roof. Included despite C20 remodelling, for good quality C16 framing
