projection with tumbled off-sets. Roof projects at rear by more than a metre.
Right gable wall returns to rear range, containing present main entrance and
further heavy-framed casements in first 2 bays; rear 2 bays are mostly C20 but
wall extends beyond, with remains of 2 more windows, to link with churchyard
wall and now forms part of a C20 outbuilding. Interior: moulded and chamfered

purlins. One truss has slightly curved principals. Attached wall running

west is higher and has a brick lining. It continues in brick.
