coped verges, crenellated returns (some merlons missing at time of re-survey January 1985), large floral finials (one

neo-medieval styles. Single storey and attici entrance portion with front facing gable; broad segmental -headed
carriageway, to each side coupled angle buttresses with offsets; lesser inner archway in conforming style with narrower
pedestrian gateway; stone ribbing; oak gates with iron grilles. Gable face with 2 barred leaded windows flanking a
