Exterior

2 bay, 2 storey cottage. Rubble masonry under a tile roof with a red brick end stack. Central doorway, with plain, planked door in a simple doorcase. There is a recessed panel above with a brick arched head, which was probably used for displaying toll charges. 2 window range. 4-pane wooden casement windows rising to the eaves on the first floor. The ground storey windows are under segmental brick arched heads, and contain glazing bars forming lancet-shaped heads, lending a Gothic appearance.
