To west, an altered garage opening with lintel, then 2 segment-arched doorways. The wall is topped with a spiked wrought-iron railing. At the west end, 3 sections of scrolled railing, resited. At the east end, a flight of steps with winders, with the same wrought-iron balustrade and railing. This building was probably constructed in 1740 when Hollow Stone was widened.
