Late C19 block built as isolation wards with associated mortuary to the rear. The wards were symmetrically designed as male and female pavilion wings of cruciform plan, linked to a 2-storey central block.
Male and female isolation wards, designed as reflected units around a central 2-storey block with connecting glazed corridors. Snecked brown-grey stone, slate roofs. The recessed storeyed block has two gables with mullioned and transomed windows to each floor. The central bay has a small first floor window and a doorway with small-pane over-light and marginal glazing; cross-windows to the outer, gabled bays, with small-pane glazing to those of the ground floor. Projecting end chimney, and a tall small-pane window towards rear. The rear elevation has paired windows to each gable, with smaller window between.
The L (S) wing roof has a cupola; projecting gabled bay with mullioned and transomed window, and vent slot in the gable apex. Mullioned and transomed window to the L with smaller square window beyond; to the R of the gabled bay is a mullioned and transomed window; splayed corner with similar window and a further mullioned and transomed window to the gabled end. Transomed windows to the rear and a projecting gabled bay on the inner end; small single-storey gabled office. The wing is connected to the central block by a corridor with stone wall to a height of around 1m and small-pane glazing above; monopitch slate roof to front; door to inner return. The R wing is a mirror-image of the L.
To the rear, connected by a wall and service buildings, is a parallel, single-storey mortuary range. Construction as before with louvered roof vents, small-pane windows and a boarded door.
Listed for its special interest as an ingeniously-planned late C19 isolation block.
