slight central breakforward. Central entrance has a late C19 porch with 2 columns
supporting a plain heavy entablature; sash windows with late glazing and plain cills.
At rear a large round headed staircase window with glazing bars. Rear wing:
reddish-brown brick with a string course along part of length. New pantile roof. 2
low storeys. Scattered fenestration. C19 wooden doorcase. Patching indicating
removal of central doorway. Interior of main block: impressive late C17-early C18
staircase with twisted balusters and reeded newel s. At foot of stairs in entrance
