The rear elevation of the C19 wing is rendered with a three-sided bay at ground floor level with lead roof and three-pane lights, with a twelve-pane sash above. The central range (S side) has three twelve-pane sashes to first floor and a central glazed double door with three-panes and margin lights to each leaf, flanked by two matching bays with four lights of three panes each.
