Gas Company. Sandstone ashlar, with slate roofs, in French Renaissance style.
3 storeys and attics, basement on south front to St. John Street. 3 by 3 wide
bays plus an angled corner bay. Arcaded ground floor altered on West front to

storey rounded oriel with a balustraded parapet before an elaborate 3-stage
pilastered gable backing on to a pavilion roof. The side bays have shallower
square pilastered projections and smaller pedimented 2-stage attic gables... The
corner bay is an oriel, on a heavy rounded and moulded corbel, rising to a dome

banded rustication on the narrow wall spaces and by entablatures with panelled
blocking courses at floor levels. 3 or 4 plain windows to each bay.
