ment and a very small square light to the right of a lean-to porch with solid
cheeks to a broad studded plank door which gives to cross passage behind a ridge
stack; small stack also to left gable end, with a single storey extension which
is not of special interest. First bay of set-forward front appears to belong to

doors and various casements including three 2-light at first floor. Front eaves
at higher level than back. Stair rises by renewed bressumer fire to right
room. Right part is Houghton Cottage in 2 storeys with 3 windows; at ground

slated lean-to, and 2-light with glazing bars. First floor has three 2-light.
Between middle and outer bays is a set forward in the walling near eaves,
possibly registering a point of extension. Return gable has two C20 2-light
casements above a 2-light C19, and similar in gabled extension. Back has gabled
end, C20 windows, and glazed conservatory over a gap to a one storey extension
in swept-down roof. Large stack in internal angle and possible bread oven.
