broken segmental pediment containing C20 coat of arms. Sashes with glazing
bars in architraves with pulvinated friezes beneath broken pediments,
alternately segmental and plain. Gable coping, shaped kneelers, left end
and ridge stacks. Doubled chamfered mullion windows to end gable. Interior
contains several original chamfered cross beams and panelling and an open

facade may have taken place. C20 renovations resulted in blocking of
central first floor window.
