rendered to front, with some stone dressings. Hipped plain tile roof
with gablets. Moulded stone plinth and chamfered stone quoins to front.
Tall external brick lateral stack at rear. Pair of segmental-headed
windows to front with round-relieving arches above (visible internally)
and C19 two-light wooden casements. Doorway to left with pegged frame.
All now obscured by C19 lean-to addition with 2-light wooden casements to
left and central recessed pair of C19 panelled doors with round-arched
overlight. 4 steps up to door. C19 lean-to addition to left-hand return
front too. Pair of segmental-headed windows at rear (heads rebuilt in late
