Facade is punctuated with 2 and 3-light diamond mullioned windows and assorted casements, all of 1980s, but probably accurate replicas. Gabled roof with 6 sloping dormers. South side in 2 distinct builds. Entrance passage emerges via double timber doors. 2 storeys and dormer attic Assorted late C20 casements and 2 pedestrian doors now opening into shop and domestic units. Disposition of fenestration is erratic but existence of ashlar quoins many indicate authentic mid C16 locations and size. Much re-used ashlar in elevation. Gabled roof with 2 sloping dormers. Left of the passage doors the elevation projects under a shallower pitched roof and reduces to one storey and dormer attic Flight of late C20 steps leads to small terrace serving two C20 French windows and a door. 3 sloping dormers in roof.
