Red brick with twin bands of gault brick at various levels. Pilasters between each bay of the centre range rise from 1st floor, have capitals at 3rd floor and support round arches at 3rd storey; within each of these is a circular window. Mainly concrete plaintiled roofs, the higher block with gabletted hips and the lower blocks half-hipped. (The right hand block has an asbestos-slated roof). Small-pane iron windows with segmental heads of gauged gault brick. Boarded doors, some with oblong fanlights. A weatherboarded hoist with small-pane casements is cantilevered centrally above the 3rd storey; a smaller and lower hoist projects from the left hand gable. The left-hand block contains an Armfield water turbine which is still in working order; in front of it is a late C18 bridge beneath the road. Its outer face has two semicircular arches, mainly red brick with random burned headers. The parapets are rebuilt in C19 gault brick. The milling machinery has been removed.
