The present centre room is unheated, the old end stack has been used to heat

remains of a timber-framed stack are said to survive in the attic space above
the rear left service room.

the C19 addition, which is clear from a straight joint in the brickwork. C19

window right is an early C19 tripartite sash, 16-pane in the centre, flanked
by 4-pane sashes. 2-span roof gabled at the left end and hipped at the right
