west wings, 2-storey parallel former mangle room adjoins
north wall of latter. Snecked and stugged pink ashlar with
polished dressings. Tower has angle buttresses at lower
stage, 2 narrow east-facing lights at ground (otherwise
bipartites face east and south), and off-set upper stage; depressed-arched door to 3-bay west wing and in gabled porch
of 2-bay north wing. Sash windows mostly with 8-pane glazing
pattern. Saw-toothed skews; wall-head and axial stacks; slate
Sheds (? laundry coal stores) built in to bank at north west;
2 segmental-arched openings, timber gates with ventilation
