door, top 2 glazed, partly under the jetty, a small 2-light
casement over, and one other window to each floor, 3-light above
and 4-light below. Central chimney rises to rear of ridge. W
side has a side chimney to the S room of the W wing and 3 flush
casement windows to each floor. The interior has chamfered
jowled posts and cranked tie-beam to upper floor of W wing, head
