The outer bays have moulded cornice and crenellated parapet and the centre bay has its parapet supported on a corbel table to simulate a tower. The east and west faces of the gatehouse are similar. Gable end stacks. The gatehouse is flanked by crenellated wing walls which hide single storey brick and stone outbuildings.
