Wing is 2 storeys (to same height) and has unusual tall windows with projecting moulded surrounds with consoles beneath and cornices above: one on each floor to front and rear, 2 on each floor in the right return wall (a modern single storey lean-to covering the base of the chimney stack between them), and in the front gable a blocked square opening with similar surround, Other openings of less interest, but doorway in angle with wing was formerly covered by lean-to porch. Modern porch covering door to front of wing incorporates at ground level a moulded Tudor-arched chimney piece with spandrels lettered "RH" "1557", which was in situ (over cross- corner fireplace in main range) in 1889.
