or rendered rubble, concrete tile roofs. A long gabled single depth plan, with,

storeys; the entrance front has mainly C20 windows, some with concrete lintols,
but each of the gables has, at first floor, a granite C16 window in 2, 3, and
2-light to round heads under square label courses; that over porch has an iron
armature. Wide 4-centre arch with square drip courrse to decorative stops, in
