Square in plan around central courtyard. 2 levels; moulded eaves to south and east and dentilled eaves cornice to north and west. South (entrance) front: in 5 bays; central pedimented break in vermi- culated stonework with low elliptical stable arch and 2 flanking blind arches, also elliptical, on either side; moulded impost band runs right across. Return to right (east) has imposing central pedimented portico with 2 pairs of Tuscan columns, flanked by 4 windows on either side, mostly blind, the 2 right-hand ground floor ones (4-paned sashes with horns) are set lower; first floor cill band; 3 ashlar ridge stacks with moulded capping, one to left and 2 to right of central portico.

The blocks of moulded and dressed stone, arranged on the ground in a rough circle by the north-east corner of the stable block, probably come from the former Butterton Hall, built by Thomas Hopper for Sir William Pilkington in the TudorGothic style c.1840-50 and demolished in 1921.
