plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 2 bays aligned NE-SW; C18
single-storey extension to SE, with end stack, and lean-to extension to SW;
mid-C19 brick range to NW, now forming entrance range, with 2 internal rear
stacks. 2 storeys and cellar. Ground floor, 2 pairs of sashes, each of 2 + 2
horizontal lights with crown glass, mid-C19; first floor, 2 similar sashes, and
central sash of 4 + 4 vertical lights. Central 4-panel door in gabled porch of
plastered brick with C19 serpentine bargeboards. Similar sashes in each return
of the entrance range. The middle range is jettied at both ends, with at the NE
end 3 wide plain brackets and an early C19 sash of 10 + 10 lights on each floor,
and at the SW end 2 wide plain brackets and a horizontal sash of 6 + 6 lights on

the remainder demolished. A cambered tiebeam in the present service range may
be from it.
