Plain ashlar parapet above. Slightly advanced to left is the original ground floor of the 1881 stand which has a 7 bay colonnade of paired Tuscan columns flanked by engaged columns to either end, supporting entablature with moulded cornice. Beyond to either end are advanced bays which have low semi-circular headed recesses with radiating voussoirs set in horizontally rusticated stonework, below deep entablature with plain band to base, plain frieze with swagged central panel and moulded cornice. Balustraded parapets over colonnade, plain parapets over end bays, all with plinths and moulded copings. Recessed behind the colonnade is a brick wall with 7 semi-circular headed openings, now all with C20 half-glazed doors below plain fanlights. To right of central archway projects 13 stone steps with plain metal railings to sides. To far right corner is the remains of a similar advanced bay as those to either end of the colonnade. Above and behind, the steps continue up until they reach the back wall flanked on either side by ramped brick walls with stone copings. Front of roof is supported by 7 iron columns with arched braces to top, similar columns to sides. Hipped roof with square vents flanking central square clock turret which has taper- ing base, clock faces to four sides and belled leaded roof topped by open ironwork ogee finial. Within the building to the left are a pair of semi-circular headed arches giving access to the steps. Rear elevation has 6 tall semi-circular headed windows through both ground and first floor of left-hand bays with lintels at first floor level, 3 6-pane sashes over with segmental brick arches and stone sills, each flanked to right by similar blind opening. 6 right-hand bays have tall sashes flanked by semi-circular doorcases to ground floor, 12-pane sashes to first floor; and 4 6-pane sashes above, all below flat brick arches. Listed partly for historic association, as racing has played an important role in the history of Doncaster, a C19 grandstand is also a rarity.
