Outbuilding. c1750, altered C19, Probably by John Carr for William Gossip.

extension forming link to East Wing is not of special interest. Large

blind windows beneath eaves bandy moulded gable copings on left. Rear; door
with deep lintel flanked by casement windows beneath keyed lintels; inserted
garage door on left. Left return: later lean-to beneath pedimented gable
with blind Diocletian window in tympanum.
Interior:right end wall removed; 4 original roof trusses with twin-collared
principal rafters. The Diocletian motif is characteristic of James Paine who
corresponded with Gossip about the proposed house at Thorp Arch prior to the
involvement of John Carr; it is possible that the outbuildings are part of
some original scheme suggested by Paine although executed by Carr,
