Between the stacks is one central sash window, 3x4 panes and
one reduced with 2-light casement. Second floor 3 blocked
windows, one central sash and another adjacent, both 3x3
panes.
The INTERIOR was not examined. It appears to be very
institutionalised with little early work surviving. It was
said to have a 2-storeyed Georgian galleried hall (listing of
1976). At the NE corner is a C20 red brick block not included
in the listing. Dytchleys and its outbuildings (qv) form a
group.
