ings have dressed stone arches. Central doorway with similar stonework with
blind fanlight and C19 flush panel door, the top panel glazed and a later
C19 or early C20 brick porch with a hipped slate roof.
Similar but smaller Gothic casement attic windows in the gable ends. Set
back at the right hand end a l-storey and attic outshut with a lean-to slate
roof. Set back at the left hand end a low 2-storey wing with a hipped slate
roof extends to the rear where there is a loft doorway and external stone
stairs.
The rear elevation of the main range has Gothic pointed sash windows and a
