light wooden casement with glazing bars and a concrete lintel to
the ground floor, smaller 2-light wooden casement above; single
16-pane sash within a dressed stone surround to the left of a C20

light above; two similar 16-pane sashes to the first floor. Twin
gables facing the road with 16-pane sashes; 2-light stone-

surround; two C19 casements with small panes and one C20 casement
with glazing bars to the upper floor. Gable-end and axial stacks,
two with moulded cappings.
Interior: beams with deep flat chamfers. Part of the main

same room, both fireplaces have been mutilated prior to being
walled in. Bread oven with a segmental-headed brick opening to the
