all of these windows modern vertical rectangular casements with
diamond-leaded glazing. Rear wall has traces of 3 labels to former brick
mullion windows, and there is a 2-light brick mullion window in the apex of

C17 style; former kitchen (now bar) to rear of hall has stopped

cambered collars, 2 pairs of purlins windbraced above and below (some

which are clearly re-used, having joist housings on the upper edges).
