freestone dressings, 'tile roofs, pennant dated 1873, tall stone stacks. High Victorian Tudor and neo-Early English

cross-wing to north. Projecting south wing with hipped roof, half-hipped dormers over first floor windows. Irregular
windows of one, 2 and 3-lights, some with transoms and some with trefoiled heads, some lights with sash windows, some
lights with iron casements. East front with projecting oratory and adjacent stair-turret with conical roof; foiled
oculus to gable with buttress below, some stained glass. The principal door opening to north, moulted pointed-arch
