Northview Hospital
(north block)

Workhouse, now hospital. Commemorative plaque over central door
reads 'Cricklade and Wootton Bassett Union: 1837'. Fine red brick
with white joints, hipped low-pitched slate roof, no stacks.
Facade to street a formal composition in 2 storeys, with single set
back wings with gable slated roofs. 3-4-3 bays with broad pediment
to central four bays, plain stone string course, single brick eaves
course, stone cornice and pediment course. All windows original
sashes with glazing bars under fine rubbed brick flat arches,
stooled stone sills; central wide 6-panel door up 2 stone steps,
and heavy flat hood mould on simple brackets. Incised
commemorative plaque above door, but pediment plain.
Interior has been substantially modified, but there is some
original brick vaulting to cross corridors. A good example of low-
cost C19 public enterprise presenting a seemly facade to the
village street.
