The eaves, cornice and dentil frieze is carried over the top at the same level as the flanking blocks. The archway is surmounted by a massive carving in limestone of the Rolle arms on a panelled pedestal. The rear elevation is identical to the front. Inside the archway each side of the flanking blocks contains a central doorway; a single panel door with a stucco pediment hood on ornate scroll consoles.

The walls are brick with stucco channelled rustication and limestone weathered coping. The piers are also stucco on brick.
