forming overall L-shaped plans; that to Tossells House contains staircase in front
left-hand corner with kitchen at rear heated by gable end stack, that to Stucley
House now used as office and store rooms, was originally a kitchen with store room
over, with 2 lateral stacks on the right-hand (rear) wall, 1 of brick, the rear one
capped. Both rear ranges appear to be C19.
