limestone-ashlar stacks. 3-unit lobby-entry plan extended to T-plan. 2 storeys

early C19 stone-mullioned window of 3 lights with label, and the casement to

first floor the 2 bays to right have 2-light casements and the outer bays have
blocked openings. Thatched roof has 3 ashlar stacks. Left gable wall has C17
mullioned windows of 2 and 3 lights to 3 floors. Rear has a central stair
