one axial to left-hand wing, one at gable end of right-hand range and one set in

from the roof trusses. The left-hand range consists of 2 rooms which may formerly
have had a passage between them - the left-hand room is heated by a rear lateral
stack, the right-hand room by an axial fireplace which might formerly have backed

light leaded pane casement window with narrow square section mullions.

fireplace with a wooden lintel which is chamfered with runout stops. The right-hand
room of this range has a very wide fireplace with a chamfered wooden lintel which
