of red brick in English bond with dentil string arched up over doors,
and battered buttresses flanking front; upper storey rendered and
colourwashed; half-hipped plain-tile roof; central brick chimney with
off-set cap. One storey and attic, 2 bays. Ground floor has 4-light
barred wooden casements, the right window retaining leaded top-lights.
Chamfered and off-set brick sills, stop-chamfered wooden lintels. 3-light
attic casements in gabled dormers with richly carved and cusped
bargeboards, the left window with wooden glazing bars, the right with
later C20 plain glazing. Board doors to left and right, with moulded
brick surrounds and semi-circular brick arches over painted terracotta
tympana of local Medmenham ware. Tympana illustrate the labours of
