Double-chamfered arch, on half-octagonal shafts with moulded capitals, in stone wall under brick string and parapet containing window with 4 trefoil- headed lights. Flanking turrets are rubble, and contain small openings with monolithic round heads, below string and truncated pierced pyramids. Flanking these are lower narrow rubble sections with quatrefoil openings. Walls, with windows with 3 trefoil-headed lights, link to towers with 2-light ground-floor windows and single light above in same style but with brick label moulds. Embattled parapet.
