a large single-storey gabled porch in the centre, with plain

C19 6-light mullioned window to the left with plain surround
and flat-faced flush mullions; old chamfered mullioned windows
of 3 and 2 lights to the right, with a continuous stone slate
dripband over them; 4 square windows to 1st floor, all with 6

The 2-window extension at the south end has a square-headed
