Nearly symmetrical front consisting of a pair of sliding double timber doors to right of centre under a 3 x 11 paned overlight and brick relieving arch. To right and left are partly external stacks on the wall plane presented as pilaster strips. Altered doorway to ground floor at right of elevation. Fenestration of centre-hung 4 x 8 paned windows under segmental arches to ground and first floors, and 2 x 4 paned windows to the second floor under the eaves. West window bay with one 19505 ground-floor window and an 818 horned sash to first floor. Dentiled eaves cornice. Hipped roof.
West front is 6-window range, the 3 south window bays belonging to Ivy Cottage, originally the foreman's house, now in private occupation: 3-panelled door under plain overlight flanked by one 616 horned sash right and left under segmental heads. 3 similar first-floor sashes and 3 second-floor 6-paned centre-hung windows. Remaining 3 window bays to north similar to south front. Ridge stack right of centre.
North front with a single-storey outshut under a corrugated iron roof. 4 centre-hung windows to first floor irregularly spaced and 4 second-floor windows, smaller and also irregularly spaced. Over first-floor windows is a steel reinforcing beam. In centre rises a rectangular lift tower placed on the front wall plane and with the machine room lit by one of the 4 windows.
INTERIOR: double doors on south side lead to loading bay running south-north through ground floor. 5 x 3 bay steel frame consisting of I-section members, the verticals attached by angle brackets to the ceiling beams, riveted to the verticals, bolted to the beams. Ground-floor and first-floor uprights inserted after 1904, probably in 1917. Heavier section riveted steel ceiling beams of the mid 18805. First-floor with 2-bay brick arcade.
