Rear elevation is also of stock brick with end full-height pilasters and retains the original wooden architraves but later C19 wooden casements with pivoting tops have been inserted.

Each floor has floorboards set on two large axial beams spanning 7 metres with chamfer and runout stop, early C19 in date. Front beam on the ground floor has a two inch chamfer and is probably a replaced reused beam. Basic open tread stairs without handrail between floors.
