bays with quoins, slate roof set at slightly shallower pitch end 2 bays right, brick stack left at junction with
addition, right gable end large external stepped stone stack, large rendered stack at junction of 2 blocks. Plan:

chamfered beams with step and runout stops, those in kitchen right thought to have been reused. Gable-end entry houses
