Windows are all of c.1870 with limestone-ashlar dressings and sheet glazing.
Central section of the steep-pitchad roof his 3 tall stone-gabled dormers of
c.1803 with 2-light stone-mullioned windows. Large multiple stack rising to

vault incorporating wave mouldings. Noted as having a C14 doorway with
ballflower ornament and a plainer arched doorway, plus C17 and C18 panelling in

narrower blocked gateways near the outer ends of the side walls. All gates have
tall ashlar gatepiers, pilastered on 3 sides with the front and rear pilasters
rising from moulded pedestals; limestone entablatures incorporating pulvinated
