Right of the porch the wall of the hallpart is of dressed stone blocks, and has on each floor a recessed window of 6 large lights with chamfered mullions, square king mullion, and a hoodmould (probably C19), the upper flanked by small round-headed windows. Except for ground floor left, the wings have recessed stone mullioned windows: left, 6 lights at 1st floor, with a hoodmould, and 2 lights in the apex; right, at ground floor a transomed window of 14 lights with hollowed mullions, and above a 5-light window, (the wall above this is of old bricks); the re-entrant has a modern door, a blocked old opening at mid level, and a blocked 4-light window above.
