Former hosiery factory. Early 1870s. Painted brick in Flemish bond, partly on plinth of rubblestone with brick quoins and chamfered brick top course. Welsh slate roof. Three storeys, 8 x 2 bays.

Ground floor: bays divided by columns which support fascia board and cornice; three-light transomed small-pane windows, that to right bay bricked up. First and second floors: bays defined by pilasters; sixteen-pane windows to first floor, eight-pane windows above, all in reveals with projecting sills and segmental brick arches. Hipped roof with broad stack at left end.

Rear: on ground floor each bay has recess with tall window as front, the lower sections infilled (except to second window from left), upper windows as before; second bay from left has reinforced glass to lower windows and second floor fire door in former window; third bay from left has blocked ground and second floor windows and second floor fire door; to right of centre, two-storey pent-roofed outshut with first floor loading door and window, four-panel door, to right return and one storey outshut to left return.

This was an early steam-powered hosiery factory: the engine house and stack have now gone (John Janway pers-comm).
