Left end taken up by water conduit (see below). Moulded timber
cornice at first-floor level and front above is slate-hung
including 2 bands of scallop-shaped slates. 2 flat-roofed
canted bays rise through first and second floors and contain
front horned 4-pane sashes to first floor and replacement

cornices above the windows. Deep eaves with plastered soffit

Projecting flat surround. Stone plaque in wall above has
concave top corners, an incised reeded frame and is inscribed
with the initials "FS" (presumably Feoffees of South Town) the

1899. The 2 later dates possibly relate to rebuilding phases
of this house.
