Door opening to right-hand side of ground floor. To the left of the gabled part, a narrow single bay extends north-westwards with a blocked ground floor opening, and above, small window openings with sash frames below a plain parapet.

A complete and well-preserved example of the C19 inland warehouse once found throughout the centre of Liverpool, displaying the characteristic features of the building type, and of contrasting scale, form and detailing to the adjacent railway receiving warehouse (item 49/1305) with which it forms a group. The majority of warehouses of this type, which form the industrial vernacular of the C19 port, have been demolished.
