Central and right bays: gabled. Chamfered plinth, quoins on right. Chamfered quoined doorway on left of central bay with C20 door and pent porch. Board door in plain stone surround to left of right bay. Double-chamfered mullion windows, of 5-lights to central bay with above, a 2-light and a 5-light window both with round-headed lights and sunk spandrels and a "W" in head of central light of the latter. Right bay has a 4-light window with 3-light window above. Gables are coped and have shaped kneelers. 2 stacks with tabling to left pitch of central bay. 2 external stacks to right end, front one truncated. Rear: 3 gabled bays, outer bays projecting. Left bay has chamfered plinth, 5-light window with hoodmould and 4-light window above, kneelers and coping. Central bay has C19 openings with raised plain stone surrounds. Doorway on right with overlight and tall keystone incised with 'H' and crosses. Above keystone are remains of earlier datestone, the cornice of which has dated boss. 2 windows to left of door and 3 above. Right bay has quoins, tie-stone surround doorway on left, and small rectangular opening with ledge in gable. In left return of this bay are traces of a C17 1st-floor window. Right return: right-hand stack has 2 gutter spouts at offset. To right is a blocked, lst-floor, chamfered light.

One king-post truss with cusped brace to ridge-plate and struts, wattle and daub in gable, indicating division wall in this bay. Wall plates, purlins, rafters. Kendall suggests that the 'W' on the front window refers to a member of the Wilde family which occupied the building 1703-63, and that the symbols over the rear door are possibly a merchant's mark (Kendall pp 202, 230-38).
