The monument consists of the remains of an engine house, dating to the 19th century. The Clive Engine House was built in 1860-2 to house a 100in diameter beam engine and is a fine limestone building with tapered walls and a slate roof. There is a lined stone shaft in front and weatherboarding above the 'bob' wall. No internal fittings survive.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of mining in Wales. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. An engine house may be part of a larger cluster of industrial monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
