heavily remodelled and extended in early to mid C19. Plastered walls, probably
stone rubble. Low pitched hipped slate roof. Brick stack at left-hand end and 4
brick stacks along rear wall of original range.

either side and subsidiary service rooms to the rear. Probably divided into 2
properties in early to mid C19 at the central hall when a large wing was added
behind the right-hand end and subsequent C19 outshuts were built at the rear
Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 3-window front with central bay projecting

with 2:4:2 pane sash windows to each light. Large Doric portico slightly
asymmetrically placed extending to right of centre, probably circa early C19. 2
doorways behind it - the right hand one inserted in circa early C19 is roundheaded
with a C19 part-glazed door. To its left is the original doorway with a C19 part-
glazed door which has a narrow glazed light to either side and a pentagonal fanlight
above with radial glazing bars. There is a flat band dividing the 2 floors and a
parapet which virtually conceals the roof from the front. Rear elevation has large
