The N and S courtyard ranges appear to have been extended by 2 bays each, to the E. The ridge stack, with skew, to the E of the N courtyard range, marks the original end gable. The penultimate bipartite window to left of W courtyard range appears to have been a door, as the masonry and lack of hoodmould would suggest. No internal features of any interest survive.
