Large stone plate tracery window on main hall elevation with brick and stone banded outer arches, moulded hood with carved stops. Low projecting entrance porch and corridor with 3 pairs of single-light pointed arch windows. Sides of hall have three large tripartite windows with stone mullion and transom windows which continue into the roofline; pointed upper lights in gabled 'dormer'. Central bellcote with pierced wooden frame: trefoil-shaped openings with quatrefoils above, tiled roof and iron weathervane. Three outer doors are pointed with elaborate Gothic-style hinges.
