4 timber-framed bays including narrow stack bay; one long bay towards

gabled to front, right range with higher ridge. Gable of left range
jettied with plain bressumer, moulded bargeboards, and with C19 moulded
pendant descending through collar. Right range gable unjettied, but with
moulded bargeboards rising from projecting wall-plate ends, with C19
"collar" between them towards apex, pierced by moulded pendant. Left
range half-hipped to rear, right gabled. Multiple red and grey brick
stack in right slope of roof, towards rear of left range. Multiple red
and grey brick ridge stack with cogged cornice towards centre of right
range. Irregular fenestration of 5 post-1877 Gothick lights; two
2-light to each gable and one single-light towards centre. Similar
lights to attic and to long right side. Canted Gothick bay to ground
floor of left gable, and rectangular bay to right. Panelled door with
two top lights to left end of right section, boarded door under stack
to right side and further doors to rear gable end. Rear lean-to to
