Welsh slate roof and stone stacks. Rectangular plan with rear stair
turrets. 3 storeys; symmetrical 4-window range. Free Domestic Tudor
style. Scrolled inscriptions, reading POLICE AND SUPERINTENDENT, above
arched doorways with decorative strap hinges to plank doors. Chamfered
mullioned and transomed windows, of 3 lights to first floor and 2
lights to ground and top storeys, the latter interrupting cornice
which is continued to former town hall (qv); nowy-headed pediments to
outer windows, surmounting parapet. Parapet returned to side
elevations, and ramped up to stacks. Similar fenestration to sides and

important position in the centre of the town.
