The door, set in a raised half-brick frame, is boarded, with planted bead forming a 'Y'- traceried 2-light pattern. Above the door a multi-paned window, the head having a pointed head and painted intersecting glazing bars. Windows each side, now replaced with plastic, are set in a raised brick frame and contain similar blind window heads with intersecting tracery. The E return elevation as three similar windows.
