Similar heavily chamfered door surround to rear which has a 2-light double-chamfered cavetto-moulded mullion window. The rear of the cross wing has 3 and 4-light flat- faced mullion windows of C18 date and a lean-to extension against its gable. INTERIOR: Imposing stone fireplace in house-part has elliptical head, cyma-moulded surround and ogee-moulded cornice. The fireplace may replace a former smoke hood.
