Presbytery, with attached chapel (subsequently remodelled as convent). Probably all early C18, enlarged and/or remodelled in mid C19 (and altered in C20): the presbytery, dated 1850 on the porch, has a datestone of 1719 on its rear wing, and the convent, dated 1859 on the former porch, has remains of C18 windows at the rear. All brick, the presbytery stuccoed and the convent of red brick with sandstone dressings; graduated slate roof to presbytery, stone slate roof to convent. PLAN: irregular plan, the presbytery with a double-fronted front range attached to the north end of a single-depth rear wing; and the convent attached to its north-east corner. PRESBYTERY: the front range, in Tudor style, 2 storeys and 2 windows, has a gabled single-storey porch with a shouldered outer opening, and a painted shield in the gable with the date 1850 above it; a 2-storey canted bay to the right with mullion-and-transom windows, a lean-to to the left and small windows on each floor of this side; gable copings with kneelers, a gable chimney to the left and an extruded chimney stack at the right-hand gable. Its rear wing has a raised band between floors, a modern 2-storey bay close to the front range and at 1st floor to the right of this a shouldered stone plaque inscribed "1719", with the Blundell shield. CONVENT: Tudor style, 2 storeys and 2:3 windows, with a gabled 2-storey former porch in the centre. This has a stone 1st-floor band carried round, patched brickwork at ground floor of the front (showing position of former doorway), a sunk panel with a carved shield at 1st floor dated 1859, gable coping with kneelers, and a segmental-pointed window in its left side wall. The main range to the left has a segmental-pointed doorway, a C19 2-light stone mullioned window to the right, 2 similar windows at 1st floor, and a square window offset left at mid level to the left. The main range to the right (probably formerly a schoolroom) has 2 tall formerly 2-light mullioned windows with altered glazing, and a small window at 1st floor to the left also with altered glazing. Gable copings with kneelers, gable chimney to left, large lateral ridge chimney in line with porch. The rear wall has the remains of 3 large round-headed windows with brick
