Built to serve Graig House, probably in the earlier C19 when Graig House was remodelled.
A small but visually very attractive building of red brick in Flemish bond with burnt headers, with a tall pyramidal slate roof. Approximately 2 metres square in plan and 2 metres high at the front, it is built into a 45-degree slope of higher ground to the rear, where the eaves are just above ground level, and its front wall has a vertical-rectangular window which is now boarded. The left corner is concealed by vegetation.
Listed as a simple example of a distinctive and unusual building type; one of a group of similar buildings in this locality, with Stone Wellhouse opposite New Inn Farm (q.v.) and Well-house on E side of lane opposite village hall (q.v.).
