Roof of concrete plaintiles. 2 storeys and attics. Windows mainly mid C20
casements with imitation diamond-leaded panes. One C16 diamond-mullioned
window to rear and other restored mullioned windows. Single-storey enclosed
corner porch with mid C20 plank door. Internal stack with rendered axial
shaft. Interior. 3 earliest bays of main range show evidence for
considerable alteration, including insertion of stack into part of centre bay
