and an overlight with glazing bars; the windows are altered; all formerly

turret partly covers an extruded chimney stack to the right, next to which is
an altered cross-window at ground floor and a blocked 2-light window above
(with wooden lintel). The rear wing added in the other angle of the
stair-turret has inter alia in its outer wall an 8-light window with flush
mullions and transoms and glazing bars, and a lean-to in the angle with the
main range (formerly water tank). Two chimneys at the rear wall of the main
range of this part, one on the ridge of the wing.
