first floor has two 2-light casements and one 3-light casement to the right;

to the left of centre; except for the later windows all are late C19 with
horizontal glazing bars and timber lintels. Doorway to right of centre with
late C19 panelled door and C20 wooden lattice porch. To the left the former
warehouse has a cartway with a segmental stone arch, now blocked and a C20
window inserted.
The rear south elevation has 3 windows, symmetrically disposed late C19 2-
light casements with horizontal glazing bars and wooden lintels; blocked
doorway to left of centre and former cartway to right now filled with C20
glazed door and window with a slated canopy over.
The left hand (east) end has former loading doors on all 3 storeys, the ground
floor doorway blocked and the first and second floor doorways have windows
Interior: was only partly inspected; it retains some mid to late C19 joinery.
