Large rectangular stone building, 30 by 12 metres, of coursed gritstone rubble with horizontally tooled quoins. Transhipment warehouse, with tramway sidings entering from the north west. Each siding is flanked by an internal crane towards the gable end, and there is a loading bank flanking a roadway through the western bay of the shed. There is no obvious evidence for phases of alteration to the warehouse, beyond the blocking of a cart passage and small doorways, and insertion of windows and modern doorways, in the north and south elevation. The building is currently used by Derbyshire County Council as a road depot.
