radiating from a rectangular public garden. Red brick with slight stone
and rendered dressings, roofs tiled. Humane, Arts and Crafts socialist

Anne" features, all executed to high standards. Flanking central
St. Oswulf Street axis. 5 storeys. 18 windows wide with broad centre
break and terminal pavilion to St. Oswulf Street. Recessed cornice-hooded
porches in courtyard elevation. Segmental arched glazing bar sashes with
