wings, slightly set back, each with single band course below parapet. 3-pane

sashes. All sashes have stucco voussoir heads with keyblocks, all reworked

To left of this is a rubble stone wing, rebuilt early C20, with parapet and 2
bays of tripartite Gothick sashes. Interior contains fine mid C18 panelled room
