1609. Red brick. Stone stringcourse. Horsham slab roof. Casement windows
with stone mullions and transoms. Two storeys. Four windows. The easternmost
window bay and the next but one to it project slightly. The former has a huge
window rising the whole height of the 2 storeys and containing 4 tiers of 6 lights,
of which only 4 lights are glazed in the bottom, next to bottom and top tiers.
The latter has long and short stone quoins, sprocket eaves, a hipped roof, a
