round-arched window with interlacing, cusped glazing bars. Hipped roof
with valley to the centre. Square chimney stacks of 4 flues at either
side. Flat roofed C20 dormer at right of 3x2 panes. At the time of

which was similar to that at right, was being rebuilt. To left of the
facade is a semi-circular bow window of early C19 date, attached to the
left hand flank. A further, rectangular addition to the right hand side
extends from this side and has blank walling with a band of 3 bricks depth
below the brick parapet which has an ashlar coping. The left hand flank

with a flat-arched head at either side of which are windows of 3x4 sash
panes. To the first floor at centre is a window of 3x4 sash panes before
which is a balcony with wrought iron railing of early C20 date supported on
slender iron columns. The windows to either side of this are blocked.
Brick parapet above with a stone coping. To left of this is a projecting
rectangular bay of late-C19 date which is stuccoed and has chamfered quoins
at the corners. To the centre at ground floor level is a 1/2-glazed door
with overlight and to the first floor is a tripartite window, the central
light being of 3x4 panes with lateral lights of lx4 panes. The right hand
flank has a projecting rectangular bay at left which has a sash window of
3x4 panes with a cambered head at ground floor level and a similar window
with flat head to the first floor. Band of 3 bricks depth below the
shallow parapet. To the right hand flank of this projecting bay is a pump
with a wooden painted casing bearing a metal plaque decorated with
affronted profile heads and foliage. To right of this bay and recessed is
walling with patterning of fired headers and a door at centre with
classical surround, having pilasters at either side with moulded caps and
lattice pattern and quatrefoils to the frieze. Panelled reveals and a door
of 6 raised and fielded panels. Rear: projecting wing at left of centre
with round-arched window to ground floor right which was originally a
doorway, now half blocked and to left of this is a projecting single-storey
gabled projection. To the first floor is a tripartite window slightly to
right of centre, with a central sash of 3x4 panes. To left of this is a 2-
light casement window, originally narrower and having a cambered head. To
right is a 2-light window with a cambered head. At far right is the flank
