containing almost all the original details. Brick front to street of
2 storeys, with a band at sills and cornice. Small modillion pediment
containing a rusticated round lunette. 3 windows (centre blocked) with
round heads and no glazing bars. The side elevation has 5 stucco
keystones. Round headed double doors, and rectangular porch in Roman

outstanding of its kind. Photographs in the NMR.
