All C20 2-light casements with single horizontal glazing bar, each window of 2x2 panes. C20 gabled porch rendered as house with single side lights and boarded door with upper rectangular light. Cross-wing facade with horizontal break, probably site of jetty, now gone. One upper and 2 lower windows, each C20 2-light casements as rest of elevation. Subsidiary stack projecting with wide base on SE end, rendered. Upper exposed brickwork C20. Rear NE elevation rendered as front, central range with cross-wing to SE end and C20 wing at NW end. Central range, ground floor 3-light casement window, simple gabled dormer with 2-light casement, 2x2 panes. Lean-to porch in brick with C20 boarded door. SE cross-wing has mid height wall break suggesting jetty as at front. Ground floor C20 single light casement, first floor one single light and one 2-light C20 casement windows. C20 porch on SE end flush to back with stable type boarded door with upper light in back wall. C20 wing at NW end. Ground floor brick, first floor rendered, half hipped roof. Ground floor, one 2-light casement window and one boarded stable door with upper light and one French window, each leaf 4 panes. SE end elevation, hipped roof, external stack with broad base and C20 porch with simple gable, peg-tiled and 2-light casement window. NW end elevation, Mansard gabled end of old range and C20 wing to NE Gable end has one ground-floor and one first-floor C20 2-light casement window. C20 wing, ground floor brick upper wall rendered, peg-tiled roof. Ground floor, one 2-light casement and one boarded door with upper light. 2 dormer windows, simple gables with 2-light casement windows. INTERIOR considerably rebuilt with front and back walls replaced in brick. One studded cross-wall remains from medieval times between central range and cross-wing. Original doorway through evident to rear of block implying cross wall is high end of hall. Hall probably had a central crown post, avoided when principal stack built off apex, to front of hall. Cross-wing probably jettied at front and back but joists now present probably replaced c1600 when inserted floor set in hall - both have slender joists and lamb's tongue stopped chamfers on principal bridging joists. Primary braced timber-framing evident in hall upper bay end wall plus the C18/C19 style Mansard roof denotes considerable rebuilding before C20 general refurbishment and additions. Date of SE stack obscure, internally covered and externally rendered and rebuilt. It is probably early C17, when the floors were inserted.
