of 22 panes each. On the roof is a small octagonal wooden cupola. On each
side of the centre projection is a roundheaded doorway, with a semi-circular
fanlight and a square window of 12 panes above. The inner face of each half-H
wing has 3 windows on the first floor and one on the ground floor, between
2 round-headed doorways with semi-circular fanlights. Their south ends have
large round-headed rusticated arches, with lunette windows, in the arches above
