1903 by Charles Holden. Red brick in a castle style with Scottish touches:
romantic but austere. Four storeys and basement. North front to Prima Road
has a wide gabled central bay with a 3-storey canted projection having rebated
angles and large stone mullioned and double transomed windows, echoing the C17.
From these run balconies on many-corbelled brick brackets giving access to narrow,
recessed staircase bays. The outer bays are slightly projecting square corner
At left, one and 2-storey wings end in a more hospitable doorway with a stone
hood on big brackets.
The main west front deploys the same elements on a grander scale. The gable
is partly stepped and the "turrets" battlemented. Tall, projecting 2-storey
frontispiece has name of hospital in large period lettering. Round arched stone
entrance under a shallow corbel table has gold mosaic dressings to inner and
outer arches. Wrought iron area railings have hollow square piers with ball
