Image dated December 2008 shows the windows to the sided of the building have been updated since the 1985 listing. The two 20th century casements have been replaced with 20-pane casements more in keeping with the sash windows on the sides fronting the road and a side door has been replaced with a 16-pane casement window.
12-pane sash windows on the splay sides appear to have been retained and a 'Table of Tolls' can be seen above the door.
