Lower stage has two doorways with elaborately moulded pointed brick arches and four small lancet openings. The upper stage is corbelled out from the octagonal base to form a circular stage which housed the nesting boxes. Moulded eaves cornice, four picturesque gabled dormer bird entries with planted timber decoration. An elaborate vane no longer exists and much of the brickwork is in a poor state of repair.
