West of this is a blocked pedestrian doorway with pointed-segmental head. The east wall has 2 square-headed lights to the lower floor. Upper floor has a single late C14 window of two trefoiled lights, cross- transomed, rebated internally for shutters, and with a chamfered reve-arch. Interior: beam shelf on north and south walls at upper floor level. Vertical chases in the south wall probably for the wall-parts of the original roof.

Openings north to south: single square-headed light; window of two trefoiled lights in a square head; doorway with a segmental-pointed head; three ranges of two single-light windows, set one above another, all these have square heads, except the southern on the ground floor, which has a trefoiled head.
