The central block has 6 first floor 1-light square-headed chamfered windows, breaking the eaves, above the central pair of windows a steep coped gable rises above the eaves, clock face in centre. A bell turret behind the gable has a slate pyramidal roof. The left-hand gable has a single chamfered first floor window; the right-hand gable has 3 similar first floor windows and a smaller pair to the left above.
