remodelling. Canted bay window to right, and 16-pane sash to
left and on first floor. 12-pane sash windows to attic storey.
Central window to first floor with Y-tracery in round-arched

All windows in moulded architraves with stressed keystones.
Moulded stone eaves cornice.
Late C19 wing of 2 storeys, 2-window range. Doorway in angle

upper panels and canopy hood below overlight. Paired sashes
above the doorway. 2-pane sash window to right of doorway, and
similar doors (no longer in use) to right. Big oriel bow

INTERIOR; the building is largely as remodelled in the late

apparently incorporates the balusters and moulded treads of an
original C18 stair, reconstructed with late C19 newels, and
probably relocated.
