glass sashes to left and right of central entrance and to gabled half
dormers directly above; 4-panel door with bracketed lean-to hood; rendered
internal end stack to right. Interior: majority of fittings late C19;
benches, wainscot panelling and reader's desk all of this date but

dates to the period of extensive improvements at the neighbouring Snailbeach
Lead Mine.
