With the exception of the left hand gable wall and rear wall, little remains of this building to determine its use. Gaskell-Brown notes it was described 'in 1875 as a stable with haylofts'. An office and attached stables are mentioned throughout the history of the quay and it is assumed that this may be what is referred to, although the details are not definitively referring to this structure as a mention that it was 'almost ruinous' in 1867, is contradicted by the 1867, 1884 and 1904 maps, that still show the building roofed at that time. Further research required. Photograph of the ruined building included.
