porch is contained in the re-entrant angle. C20 2-light casements with
wedge lintels to ground and first floors of crosswing; C20 dormer to l½

wing and the room above contain a second, pointed, arch, of three orders.
Slender colonettes have stiff-leaf capitals; the arch has keel and dog-tooth

the exterior has been completely walled-in. In the room to the left of the
crosswing the chamfered bressumer, firewindow and spice cupboard of the
central fireplace survive. The firehood is visible in the centre of the
floor above. Two C18 plank doors survive: one to the service wing passage,
and one to the first floor room to the right, which also has an H-L hinge.
