Public Library, formerly Victoria Institute, and public baths.
1889. Brick with stone and terracotta dressings and plain
tiled roofs. 3-storeyed, main elevation of 9 bays (4-1-4),
with projecting central entrance porch with Jacobean
detailing: round-arched doorway with frieze in flanking stone
pilasters, and coat of arms in shallow segmental pediment. Two
large mullioned and transomed windows above, and pedimented
gable with arms.
Outer bays of banded brick to ground floor, with stone
mullioned windows with stone dressings - continuous sills and
hood moulds. Terracotta frieze over windows reading "Free
Library Public Baths, Art and Science Institute". Consoles
carry pilasters articulating the first storey, and a
projecting cornice beneath round arched arcade of windows in
the attic storey.
4 bays to Greengates Street similarly detailed, and a massive

Public Baths is a 2-storeyed brick building to Greengates
Street, linked to the library via its rear courtyard range. A
significant example of the provision of municipal facilities
in late C19.
