Two large kiln-eyes to the longer S side offset to E with wall stepped out on W end. Kiln-eyes have segmental arches with dressed stone voussoirs and central rubble stone pier. Crucible is open and brick lined but in deteriorating condition as is kiln-eye to E. The W retaining wall and central pier have been extended and the area roofed with iron sheets to form animal shelter.
