Crenellated folly of brick with pebble or flint nodule rustication (painted over). Pointed, circular and round-headed windows, and blocked and cinquefoil windows - probably never real windows but merely sham; likewise the lowered appearance of the west door with remnants of tracery above.
Pevsner (S1) says it is supposed to be 1721 but puts it nearer 1775; date questionable.
Seen by E. Rose (NAU), 8 May 1976.
Pevsner's (S1) suggested date is very accurated as the building was burnt out in the bread riots of 1766 and afterwards rebuilt.
