At road end on R side stack, beyond 2-light casement and stable type door. Roof half-hipped. This and the Smithy (qv) are part of landscape features of E Tytherley Manor, now demolished.
Including attached post-box to north set in small rendered brick pier with tile capping; a rare survival of a post-box first introduced in 1857 and superseded in 1859 by a version having a pitched top, because the earlier model was found to leak; both types have flaps and hoods to the aperture.
