south) the ground floor is cased or rebuilt in C19 red brick. Scalloped
bargeboards. Thatched roof. 2 storeys and attic. 3-cell form. C19 casement
windows, 3 to ground floor, 2 to first floor; all have a single horizontal
glazing bar to each light. 2 mid C20 doors. Internal stack, the shaft
rebuilt in white brick. External stack to right gable end. Single storey red
brick and pantiled additions on each gable end; rear lean-to in colourwashed
