external, with an external front lateral stack with 2 paired set-offs, heating hall.
Brick shafts to all. 2 storeys.
Front: 4-window range; 2- and 3-light C19 casement windows to 1st floor;, the front
of the former parlour is now largely obscured by a C19 brick and rubble extension
with attached C20 conservatory. C19 casement windows to ground floor, with rough
open timber porch to former passage entrance.
Rear: stair turret with ovolo-moulded 2-light window; C19 and C20 rear extensions.

pegged, that to the right unchamfered and grooved, with a later 2-light internal
window inserted; rough axial beam to lower-end room; blocked rear window to hall;
large fireplace, roughly worked; large cross beam between hall and parlour partly
visible. The bases of 2 crucks survive but have apparently been sawn off below the
