roof with raised verges; brick ridge stack and brick (English bond)

extended to the north-east circa 1700, extensions to the rear under 3
roofs aligned north-east/south-west. 2 storeys and attic with storey
bands; formerly 5:5 but now 2:3 windows. Wide projecting front to the
left with coped parapet ramped up to square end piers; narrower set-back
section to the right with a frieze of blind panels at attic level
reflecting the pattern of the former fenestration below, i.e. 3 main
windows to the centre flanked by 2 outer windows of reduced width, gable
as implied pediment above containing a blind oval keyed oculus. Mainly
glazing bar sashes replacing earlier tall rectangular windows with flat
brick arches, now blocked. The left hand section has a large early C20

date and 2 gabled dormers containing casements; lean-to porch to the left.
The right hand section has a single storey porch to the left with
crenellated parapet and half-glazed porch, the first floor window to the
left is of reduced width. Interior: the ground and first -floor rooms
of the central bay retain cross-beams with quarter round and hollow chamfer

Foundations of another, possibly earlier, building have been found
immediately to the north-west.
