from a lateral stack at the back, the right-hand room has a gable end (now

hipped slate roof. To the right of centre there is a recess on the ground

Set back on the lower left-hand end the thatch of the main roof is swept
down over a single storey outshut with a hipped roof and a C20 plank door.
The rear elevation has only 2 small windows to the left into the C18-C19
