wall, big gable stack. C20 glazed door under pent roof, 2-light glazing bar
casement at eaves of stair turret and to right a 2-light over 3-light, all to
wood lintels. External stack in right gable, raised in brick; to its right a
3-light horizontal bar casement over C20 glazed door. At back a small square
light, low left, 2-light low centre, and 3-light at eaves, left. Interior:
4 heavy transverse chamfered beams to bar stops; room to left has remains of
