L-shaped. North-west wing has opposing wide doorways,

openings, now filled with late C20 doorways and windows.
South-east side has blocked openings, one with ventilation
slit in the blocking; stone steps to upper storey; low lean-to

though all the wall posts have been removed. Slightly cambered

considerably smoke blackened."
