have had a passage between them - the left-hand room is heated by a rear lateral

light leaded pane casement window with narrow square section mullions.

fireplace with a wooden lintel which is chamfered with runout stops. The right-hand
room of this range has a very wide fireplace with a chamfered wooden lintel which
has straight-cut stops.
