lower ridge to right section. Multiple brick ridge stack to left end of left
hall bay and brick stack in rear slope of roof towards right end. Irregular fenestration of four windows; one small gabled 2-light eaves dormer towards centre of hall, one flat-roofed 2-light through dormer to right end bay, and
two flat-roofed 3-light and top-light through dormers to right addition.
Ribbed door towards left end. Blocked doorway under stack. Rear lean-to to
right section.
Interior: exposed framing. Inserted cross-beam immediately to right of
central truss, with 2 pegged posts beneath it indicating probable width of
timber stack. Heavy-scantling arch-braces to central truss. 4-light diamond mullion window to ground floor of former right gable end. Stack with one
tall plain stone to each jamb, and wooden bressumer. Roof said to have sans-purlin collared common rafters.
