wooden lintels; old plain-tile root with rubble-and-brick ridge stack. 3-unit

3-window front retains wooden ovolo-moulded mullioned-and-transomed windows at
first floor, but at ground floor has a large inserted vehicular entrance, a C20
doorway, a C20 bay window, and a deep 3-light casement with a rendered wedge
lintel which is probably C19. Gable windows are blocked except for a 2-light
casement in the left gable. Massive rubble-based stack, to right of centre, has
3 diagonal brick shafts. Central gable to rear. Lower rear wing, returning on
