This building is located in a prominent position within the village of Drom. The form of the building is articulated by the dressed limestone quoins and decorative opening surrounds. The textural contrast between the roughcast rendered walls and dressed masonry create additional visual interest to the exterior. Interior features such as the decorative plasterwork and the stained-glass windows add artistic interest to the building. The site of the building is enhanced by the grave markers, belfry and entrance gate.
