Long wide building constructed of local random rubble. The long sides face approximately north-south and the front elevation faces east. The front (gable) elevation has been much altered and contains rubble and some local buff coloured brick. A building approximating in size to this one is indicated on the tithe map of 1847. Examination of the building suggests that the current structure most likely does date from before 1847, although alterations have subsequently altered its appearance. The span and construction of the roof would suggest that construction during the first half of the 19th century is most likely. It appears to have been a warehouse with storage on three levels, but there is no physical evidence to suggest a particular use.

The cellar was demolished during the construction of the roundabout on the Jetty Marsh Link Road in 1995.

The clay cellar does not appear to have been demolished as stated by Babtie Group. A long, low gable-ended building is visible on Google Streetview on the west side of West Golds Way, just off the roundabout which fits the description given by D. Griffiths. The building has a rubble stone south-east gable end with entrance and rendered north-east wall with blocked windows. The other gable end appears to be rendered also. South-west wall not visible. Corrugated roof ?metal with raised ridge.
