lights. Flanked by two tiers of lancet windows, one blocked,
and with two small blind lancets above again. Three bays to

gothic windows. Similar arrangement of three bays to right, but
with gothick glazing bar sashes and some later fenestration.
Taller square towers at each end with two tiers of blind gothic
windows. North elevation of five symmetrical bays. Centre bay
as a gate tower with polygonal turrets rising well above the
wings. Central pointed carriage arch. The end bays are set
forward like square towers. Three tiers of blind lancets, the
top ones little more than arches. Most of the north wall and
the southern four bays of the west wall are only a facade.

Castellated walled enclosure attached to north west, with a
circular turret. The main block has an irregular east elevation
with a five bay open Tudor arcade.
