right-hand gable and on gable of left-hand wing have projecting stacks.
Further chimneys to right of porch and between porch and left-hand wing.
Re-set on the west side of the house and used as a window is a moulded
door architrave with lintel inscribed: '16 ONI 78'. Set into the west wall
of a wing at the rear of the house is a stone inscribed: '1886 NNA'.
