slate roof with brick chimney at left gable. Double-depth 2-bay plan with
continuous rear outshut. Two storeys (possibly raised from one or li),
symmetrical; in the centre a 4-centred arched doorway in massive stone
surround with deep chamfer stopped at the feet of the jambs with modified
jewelled stops (resembling those on internal doorways at Heskin Hall,
q.v.), over the head of the door a worn datestone with raised decoration
and lettering, now illegible; two Cl9 windows on each floor. Right return
wall has a deeply-recessed mullioned window of 4 lights with a hoodmould,
