The rear brick and timber ice chute (as pictured on the listed building documentation) is no longer extant. Appart from some slight damage to the double wooden doors, the remainder of the external walling appears to be in good condition. <1>

Large structure built under a mound, stone faced to N. Inside there is a pair of corbelled chambers with windows in higher parts. Used as a net store - photos <2>

Photographs of the interior were submitted to the HER by a participant on a Community Timeline Course, run by ARCH. <3>
