kilns on the left (west) end and another close by on the rear. 2 storeys.

regular 4 first floor windows along the front of the stowage are probably in
original openings. Front door at left end of front contains a circa 1980 door
with sidelights. Secondary doorway at right end is original round-headed
arch. Ground floor under a pent roof carried on a 4-bay arcade of plain
timber posts. Cogged brick eaves cornice to stowage and kilns. Roof is
