trefoiled lights and a crenellated parapet. The gable above has chamfered copings
on moulded kneelers. In the internal angle formed by this range and northern
range is a similar 2-storey bay, square and of 3 x 4 lights with cambered heads to
ground floor and trefoiled heads to 1st floor, again with crenellated parapet.
The northern east-west range has 2 bays of 3-light, flat-faced mullion windows and

C20 two-storey addition not of special interest.
