Boarded doors to centre and R, with a 2-light window between them and to left, mainly casements with horizontal glazing bars. Loft hatch to L end of brick section, adjacent to L window, which was originally a door. The stone bay has a tall wooden casement window with horizontal glazing bars under a gabled half-dormer. Ventilation slit to L. To the far L is a boarded door with latticed loft hatch immediately over.
