Light-hearted building of early C20 in a free Art-and-Craft Tudor style. Bright
red brick with stone bands and a tall, tiled roof with interrupted gable end to
road. Three storeys, irregular fenestration. Three closely-set second floor
windows, the middle one shorter to accommodate cresting of ogee lead roof above
half octagonal stone first floor oriel flanked by windows of different sizes.
At ground floor right, a wide window with mullions and transoms; at left a half
glazed door, with sidelights, in Tudor arched entrance many-chamfered with brick
and stone alternating voussoirs. Flanking buttresses support label moulding raised
in centre to hold stone relief portraits of two martyrs. Top gable has wide ogee-headed
cusped panel and a final with ogee stone cap.
