original part is wider and is entered through its gable end, now projecting
beyond a C18 extension at the lane side. This original part has chamfered

above) and two similar of three lights on the south side; all those on the
ground floor have hoodmoulds. The doorway is elliptical headed and chamfered,

cyma-mouthed 2-light chamfered window and hoodmould. Over this, in the gable,
and also along the haves on the north side, are pigeon holes. The northside has
a first floor cupboard window, and the south side another with arched head, both
blocked. the addition has various windows of which the oldest seem to be the

which was probably altered at the time of the extension. Interior not inspected
but may be of interest.
