Slate roof. Pierced scalloped barge boards and finials with pendants.

a pair of wooden gates. West end with pair of lozenge-shaped openings
and matchboarded door off-centre to right. Interior: 3-bay roof; arched-
braced collar trusses with bolted V-struts. Pairs of purlins,with shaped
ends externally. 2 boat bays divided by central brick pier with tiled
walkway and decorative wooden balustrading with curved braces. Southern

(q.v.) was built in 1865-70 to the designs of Nesfield, who might also
