of 2 storeys, 2 windows. Plain roof, with catslide at rear. The walls are

floor. Casements, the east end gable has an upper early C20 oriel, with a
hipped tile roof. Plain doorframe, with a moulded canopy on carved brackets,
and a 6-panelled door. Above the doorway, several bricks are incised with
initials, including WT WL HH JW WP; in the same position is a lead Sun fire
insurance sign, number 279234, known to have been issued on the 2nd January 1770
for ... "The new house and shop". The upper wall on the east side has a

house, and that a pear-tree grew against the front wall.
