with a central cement panel between which is the size of one of the
lights. This has incised pargetting with the date AD/1865 to the top

of the barons coronet are formed of green glass bottlenecks and the
panel has floral patterns to the outer edge. Half-hipped roof above

the apex. To the right of this projecting wing is the side of the
lean-to porch which has two rectangular panels of incised pargetting
showing floral motifs again set with bottlenecks and a bottle bottom
of green glass which at the time of the resurvey (1985) had
unfortunately been overpainted. Service court to rear.
