Ground floor of flint with brick dressings, the central 3 bays beneath the canopy, with double doorway to left, and broad 2 over 2 pane sash windows, the upper sashes with curved heads matching the segmental brick arches of the window openings. Advanced bays with coupled narrow sashes to ground floor, and broad tripartite sashes above, with plat band between. 4 sashes to first floor of recessed centre, with wider openings to bays 2 and 4, and a coupled pair of narrow sashes to bay 3.
