Of lime-plastered stone, limewashed formerly in ochre colours now in white; slate roof part artificial with wide boarded scalloped-edged eaves forming a canopy; stone plinth in the form of a step. All openings, which are recessed, are now blocked but comprise a centre right arched doorway, arched window to right, second arched doorway to left in stepped back bay and further arched window end left. Gable end to downstream side has a yellow brick boarded opening below a higher blocked opening. Extending downstream are low brick and stone sheds and pens.
