Rendered brick with Ketton freestone dressings and limestone rubble. Later slate roofs largely collapsed. Rectangular plan with stair tower at the back.2-storey 5-bay arcaded front has almost entirely collapsed, but the 2-bay sides illustrate how the front appeared, with keystones to the large round arches, the ground floor with imposts, the first floor with moulded extrados and stringcourses above and at cill level; and with quoins at the corners. Short gable-ended wing at centre at rear. The open-sided top storey, illustrated in William Kemp's plan of the racecourse, was replaced by a pitched roof in the late C19.
