Local stock and Suffolk brick with red brick dressings to semicircular window arches. Main block of pump room ranged east-west has a lofty series of arched windows and oculi in the gable ends which have stepped brick detailing and parapet gables to clerestory. Tall tapering octagonal chimney stack on tall square base with engineering brick plinth at north-west corner of pump room. Accumulator tower with blind arcading, panelled frieze, cornice and parapet raised in gable over short sides. Lower north blocks support large panelled cast-iron settling tanks, carried on steel frame internally. Was in its original use until 1977; pumps and engines since removed.
