Single storey; circular plan. Of rough dressed stone with aconical slate roof rising to a central cylindrical moulded stack. There are 2 rooms, each served by a plain flat-arched entrance with 2 barred slit-windows flanking and set high up.
Within each room is a corner privy and presumably a fireplace (this latter feature is currently obscured: autumn 1994).
An interesting, unaltered centralised lock-up of considerable local historic interest.
