The property is a large double fronted attached house with outbuildings to the rear. It is constructed of red brick (although painted white) under a pitched tiled roof. The windows to the property are of a consistent design, with the entrance door and porch towards the left-hand side. From the masonry, it looks like the property was originally smaller and was added to later.

The property is located directly on the canal side within the small village settlement of Kilby Bridge. It is a double fronted ‘M’ roofed building originally constructed of red brick, however is painted white/cream. There is a small veranda type extension to the front of the property with the rear consisting of gardens and parking.

The property is a small attached brick built cottage constructed of red brick (painted white) under a relatively modern tiled roof. The property directly fronts the pavement and highway of Welford Road, with its façade characterised by an oversized timber entrance porch. It is also located directly adjacent to the Navigation Inn public house.
The property is situated along a drive off the main A5199 (Welford Road) and with its current unoccupied state is almost entirely surrounded by un-kept vegetation. The property is of red brick (painted white) construction under a low hipped slate roof with a prominent central chimney stack. There are two other associated buildings to the rear and side of the main building that are similar construction.
The main canal side building (middle of the three) is the oldest dating back to circa 1800, with the other two more modern. There is also a traditional working canal side crane. The wharf was built to support the development of the canal and road junction at Kilby Bridge and the movement of goods.
