Above the open cloisters here are the "brick slits for windows, grouped five or six at a time under crow-stepped gables" that Ian Nairn and Nikolaus Pevsner seem to find eerie (246). Yet the intricately patterned bricklaying, the neat tile caps for the crow-stepping, and the bright curving bargeboarding of the adjacent gable, all make a striking impression.
