U-shape plan with central courtyard. 3 storeys; 6-window range to 3-bay front. A central segmental archway with stepped voussoirs, double iron gates and rusticated jambs, is flanked by full-height pilasters with balls to the tops and dying into the plinth at the base; 2 similar ones to the outsides cant back to the returns and look more solid.

There is a continuous string course above the ground floor, but one above the first floor is contained between the pilasters, as is the heavy dentillation to the cornice above the second floor. The cornice itself is continuous below the parapet, which is said to be constructed of local Minster stone. This has 8 circles and a central panel between each pilaster. The panel above the entrance bears a datestone 1916. The buildings facing the courtyard are of brick. INTERIOR not inspected. HISTORY: Shirtmaking was one of the principal industries in the C19.
