1897 by C F A Voysey. Executed by Walter Cave. A broad asymmetrical 7-bay,
2-storey composition, a roughcast with Ham Hill stone dressings and tile roof.
The casement windows have stone mullions and leaded lights. On the ground floor
the openings are, left to right, a segmental carriage arch with a band of small
casements above the whole framed between full-height buttresses;
a triple and a double casement framing a plain door;
a triple casement;
a quadruple casement;
a strongly projecting Doric porch, the returns canted on plan; and a quintuple
casement.
The window heads are linked by a stone string.
On the first floor to the right of the carriage arch the second and third bays
have respectively triple and double casements and 2 double casements linked by a
string at the head and placed between twin gables.
The fourth, fifth and sixth bays have triple casements beneath a deep cornice which
breaks round the piers framing the fifth bay. The fifth and sixth bay casements
are double-height with a lower tier of glazing changing the first floor cullband to
a transom.
The seventh bay triple casement and its cornice read as a half-dormer between
hipped eaves roofs supported on iron stays.
The stacks have cornices, the left-hand stack being of characteristic battered form.
