roof. Tall 2-storey facade of 4 bays, with carriage entry in

portico on four pilasters and attic bearing inscription and date.
Bays defined by giant brick pilasters with stone caps, eaves and
sill bands. Sixteen-paned sashes with eared moulded stone
architraves and cornices. Carriageway arch is of gauged brick with
stone keyblock, and clock over with stone surround and dripmould.
Gable stacks. Late C19 two-bay wing on left. Rear elevation

sashes. Dentilled eaves.
Interior has the large meeting hall on first floor. Window
