considerably enlarged. Now Barclays Bank Training Department. The original
portion as a house dates from 1867. Two storeys and attic. Six windows. Ashlar.

5 lights each on ground and first floors with castellated parapets over. Thin
pointed sash windows, mostly in pairs. Quatrefoil openings over the ground floor
windows. Service wing to west. To the west again is a later Convent addition.
On the east side the house is adjoined by a screen to the former chapel of
