Four-pane sashes to left and right each floor, with painted stone sills.
Left wing has later C20 panelled timber door to W side right. N end has matching 4-pane sash to upper storey, ground floor has tripartite 2-6-2-pane sash in timber surround with stone sill. E side has tall brick stack and 12-pane sash to first floor left.
Right wing has blank E wall. N end has 12-pane first-floor sash and C20 small-paned ground floor projecting bay, rounded with three 6-pane casements beneath 2-pane top-lights. Nine-pane C20 casement to first floor W side near N return.
