The three storey building has a natural stone/ashlar façade with colonnades. There is some damage to the Right hand side pilaster. The order of the columns is different on the ground and second floor. The ground floor order is doric with additional banding on those on the first floor. There is a blind arcade at the parapet level. There is a pitched roof covered in slate. There are two chimney stacks constructed from light coloured brick, oblong in shape. One pot is visible per stack.

There are two doors, one at either side of the ground floor. The right hand door leads to the upper floor banking chambers. It is reached by two steps and is a six panel wooden door with a fixed glass pane above. The left hand door leads into the banking hall. It is reached by either a short flight of steps or via an access ramp. It has a fixed glass panel above and the top two wooden panels are also fixed, with the lower four panels forming the opening.

Front façade windows:

  1. Ground floor. four windows in bays defined by columns. Each contains two panes that appear to be fixed. The upper, smaller, panes is of obscured glass.
