Three-bay pediment gabled front, symmetrical with central door with pilastered surround and fanlight with cambered head inscribed to memory of those who fell in the 1914-18 war. Cornice over and tablet inscribed: "HOLT HEAD GENERAL SUNDAY SCHOOL". The fanlight has painted words: "ERECTED 1840 BY VOLUNTARY SUBSCRIPTION". Round arched sash windows with marginal glazing, to both floors, with raised key and impost blocks. The centre window, First floor, is higher.

A good, unspoilt example of a rural type which may originally have incorporated a chapel.
