Part of return elevation has similar treatment, but with sash windows, glazing bars and round-headed entrance with flanking pilasters and triangular pediment. Semi-circular fanlight with intersecting tracery. Double doors of 3 panels each (2 removed and glazed). West part of building retains the original 2 storeys. Painted brick.
