to rectangular wing, its south gable with cusped barge-board, two two-light windows with margin lights and octagonal panes and a bulls-eye window in the gable. The stump of the pumping engine chimney remains in the angle with the lower and hipped SE cross-wing. The smaller, octagonal building on SW
