crest of the Cholmeleys. Above a further keyed oculus. The 2
stores project from the garden walls and are square on plan, with
broken forward facetted fronts, added in yellow brick with ashlar
dressings when the stores were altered in C19. They have single
planked doors, single keyed oculi and in the roof are oval keyed
oculi in 2 directions as dormers. The facetted roofs originally
had fish-scale tiles with lead dressings. The tall side walls
have ashlar copings, which are partly cornices and partly gabled.
At the lower north corner is a small semi-circular headed gateway
with unusual rounded rusticated surround, and cast iron gate with
latticed base, curlicued and scrolled top containing the
