heightened in brick, with offsets, that to left has tapered cap.

upper end divided axially, with a dairy outshut at the rear. The staircase is a
C19 insertion, the original plan possibly conforming to a 3-room plan, the lower

entry into a through-passage, with the hall to right and inner room beyond, both
heated by front lateral stacks.

panes per light. C19 4-panelled door between the stacks, with 1 of the stones of
the right-hand jamb inscribed 'Painted 1821'. Leanto slate roof to porch at left
end with plank door giving direct entry into hall. Long low range of C19
outbuildings with 5 plank doors and slate roof extends at right angles from left
