arched opening with date boldly inscribed, off-centre, on voussoirs.
Continuous impost band. To 1st floor: iron casement with glazing bars
within round-arched opening now partly obscured by brick and concrete
gantry attached to front of building. Lean-to set back to right has
a casement with glazing bars to each floor. Low workshop buildings
