Tall water tower with 6 floors in angle of the ranges in buff stock brick with red brick dressings and tall square spire in bands of ornamental slating. 3 maltings forming an L-shaped block beside the railway and extending across to Stanstead Lock on the River Lee Navigation on the E. Symmetrical W range a double malting with a 2-storey building, 13 metres wide and 9- bays long at each end with low floors for germinating grain.

Progressing towards the centre there is a tall slate hung elevator tower with pitched roof, a high rectangular kiln with hipped roof rising to twin cones (S kiln retains its movable cowls) and then a lower building roofed E-W for bagging the malt.

The single malting in the N range has this sequence of buildings from W to E, but 3-storeys and 7-bays. 2-storeys slate hung lucam running out to W on cast iron columns to former rail siding. N and S end gables of W range have 4-bays of arcading with red brick segmental arches, impost, and red brick arch and jambs to central high loading door with round head and bullseye window over. Similar arcading to kilns. (Branch Johnson (1970) 176: Pevsner (1977) 344).
