Gabled centre with low lean-to on each side (blank with raised plinth to front, C20 renewed doors on back), also with coping to end walls. Centre has a segmental-pointed arch and angle buttresses, to both front and rear. Added 1914-18 war-memorial plaque in E front apex. Rafter roof within, slate flag floor and double wrought-rion gates with spearhead rails and dog-bars, top rails curve up to meeting.
