and dentil brick eaves cornice; pairs of integral rendered brick end
stacks (left-hand at rear now demolished). 3 bays; glazing bar sashes,
round-arched ground-floor windows with louvred shutters. Pair of central
doors with 3 raised and fielded panels each, reeded architrave, segmental
fanlight and surround with reeded pilaster strips, moulded imposts,
and reeded archivolt with key; flight of 9 stone steps (some replaced
with concrete in mid-C20) with low curving flanking walls and square
