left of main range has chamfered 4-centred arch with dripstone and plank door
with internal strap hinges to front and smaller segmental-arched doorway
opposing to rear. Four 2-light chamfered segmental-arched mullion windows with
hollow spandrels and dripstones, one to left and 3 to right of doorway, left
with leaded latticed lights and 2 to centre with cast-iron glazing bars.
Formerly a wide inserted entrance to left of right window but this removed and
wall rebuilt at time of resurvey. Gabled leaded dormer in roof slope to rear and
truncated bread oven to back wall. Interior. Straight-flight staircase behind
doorway has half-closed string to bottom. Panelled window shutters, plank and
panelled doors, C19 cast-iron fireplaces and remains of C19 laundry to main

The stables are shown in an engraving by M. Burghers in White Kennett's,
Parochial Antiquities of Ambrosden and Burcester (1695), opp. p.683 where they
are depicted with 5 gabled full dormers to front.
