rubble to the rest, steep-pitched roofs to the side wings,
pantile to the rear, slate to the front slope of left wing
with a small square stack to the left gable end; pantile roof
to the right; slate to the front of main block, truncated
stone stack to the right.
Single-depth plan to symmetrical 3-window-range central block
which was built into the front of the former building creating
a double-pitched double-depth plan. 2 storeys; 2 windows to
each wing, making 7-window range overall.
The C20 double doors have a C19 overlight of 4 panes, flanked
by C19 flat arches with keystones to plate-glass sash windows
with margin panes, those to the ground floor are wider. A
cornice below the parapet has a fluted frieze. The C18 block
to the left has a similar window to the first floor, an ashlar
platband, a small C19 plate-glass window to the ground-floor
left and a C20 door to the right
The wing to the right, probably older, is of softer limestone
rubble with two C19 horned 2/2-pane sash windows to the first
floor, a platband over a C20 door and porch to the right and a
C20 plate-glass window to the far right. To apex of the gable
end of the right return is a small C18 window.
INTERIOR: the ground floor of the central block retains
panelled window shutters and reveal to the door. In 1914 the
first floor was removed and the roof timber trusses replaced
with metal to create a scout hall.
