with granite corbel brackets. Small granite ashlar stacks at gable ends with
Plan: Rectangular on plan. A large hall open to the roof with an entrance porch to

the front. The other windows are 4-light mullion transom windows, all in chamfered
granite openings with hoodmoulds. To the right of centre a lateral stack with a tall
red brick shaft which rises from the roof.
Rear elevation has 3 4-light wooden mullion transom windows and one similar 3-light
window which is in a gabled projection to right of centre. To the left of centre a
C20 wooden lean-to with a corrugated iron roof.
