GV II
Engine house for Defence Electric Light installation, 1914-19, now public

concrete roof. Rectangular building in sunk walled enclosure with outbuilding
to north. Single storey, 6 bays: projecting porch at left end (now inscribed
'LADIES'), 4 windows, reduced in size, with stop-chamfered lintels; Gents'
doorway on right return is later insertion. Slightly-pitched roof with
overhanging eaves. Enclosing wall with pitched coping, extended to north-west
to flank curving approach; end piers with pyramidal caps; flight of steps at
south-west corner. Embayment in north wall, with later concrete roof, housed
cooling tanks; embayment on east with bases for petrol and oil tanks. The
