storeys, now open from ground to roof. North side facing Faulston
House (q.v.) has tall chamfered doorway, upper part now blocked, to
left is first floor planked door and recessed chamfered square
windows or loopholes. West side has blocked Tudor-arched opening
at upper floor level and several loopholes. South side has one

corbels to former first floor, walls above are lined with stone
