Axial brick stack and rendered stack at right end. Demolished stack to rear wing. Plan: L-shaped on plan. Interior much altered in C20 obscuring original plan, but appears to have consisted of 3 rooms in line, the 2 rooms to left end heated by axial stack. It is possible that there is a blocked entrance in front of the stack forming a 3-room and lobby entry plan. The rear wing to the right end appears to be integral to the main range and probably originally functioned as a kitchen. The front left hand room now the post office may have been at one time in separate occupation. C20 flat roofed single-storey extension to rear. Exterior: 2 storeys. 5-window range. Two 3-light casements. 6 panes per light at left end above 4 panelled door with similar casement to right.
