Bath's photgraphs show an apparent bank barn, rubble construction with ashlar quoins under a half-hipped slate or tiled roof. On single-storey, south-east facade is a large central entrance with a wooden lintel and a low, partially blocked window to its left. On the two-storey north-west facade is a ground-floor doorway with an arched brick head. A larger opening opposes the entrance on the single-storey side.. The wall of a curved structure can be seen extending from the south-west end. This is presemably the base for a horse-engine which operated at the higher level.
