3-window front with, at first floor, stone-mullioned windows of 3, 2 and 3
lights under cyma-moulded labels; centre window now blocked. Ground floor
openings altered, probably in C19, with painted key-stone arches and quoins;
shop window to left of central door but to right the casement window retains
jambs from a former 3-light mullioned window. Central stack has 3 diagonal
brick shafts on a stone base. Gable walls have 3-light stone-mullioned
windows to all 3 floors, now mostly blocked or hidden by the buttress to right.
Further similar windows to rear. Interior: Cellar to right has chamfered and
stopped beams supported on a central post and a 3-light stone-mullioned window,
now below ground level. Beams to main rooms are heavily-moulded and one has a
recessed soffit. Dog-leg stair, flanking the massive stack, survives only
from first floor to attics. 3-bay roof to main range has 2 rows of butt
purlins, and right truss has arched struts rising from the collar.
Former barn to rear almost totally destroyed by fire.
