Hall and workshops for the Leicestershire Guild for the Disabled.
1909, designed in A & T.E. Sawday's office probably by Ralph
Bedingfield. Red brick (with some black headers); Swithland slate
roof. Principal hall with attached offices and (to rear) the 'Queen
Alexandra Industrial Hall' (or workshop). Single storey with gallery
to street giving a 2-storeyed front elevation. This has stone coped
gable with segmental pedimented finial that extends down to frame
small attic window in aedicule. 2:3:2-light first floor windows
(lighting gallery) in stone surround, slightly bowed under segmental
superordinate stone arch. Massive segmental stone arch to central
entrance with one set of 3 small windows to either side. Rusticated
brick pilasters. To right a secondary entrance under swept-down roof.
Hall top lit by segmental dormers. Internally the hall simply
detailed; some Art Nouveau glass. Integral wall painting of Christ
raising the Crippled Man. Industrial Hall lit by clerestory. An
excellent design making use of top lighting on a cramped industrial
site. Strong Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau style by a good
provincial architectural practice.
