Magnesian limestone ashlar and in irregular blocks. Pointed-arched opening with voussoirs rising from chamfered plinth. Coursed walling above runs out into irregular blocks set as a retaining wall. Tunnel continues several metres into the bank wall below water level of Laughton Pond, its other end is not visible. A channel from the tunnel links to the river flowing through Roche Abbey (Scheduled Ancient Monument). Probably adapted as a landscape feature of Roche Abbey in the scheme carried out between 1774 and 1777 by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown for Lord Scarbrough.
