curved sides. Each storey of these is finished with an
entablature having a panelled frieze; between-storeys they are
linked by further panels. Sashes with horns; the middle ones
have patterned margin-panes, those in the upper storeys
forming round arches. Outer windows narrow and round-arched,

Linking the sills and imposts to the bays are moulded
