over windows. Very large windows with cast iron glazing bars and
segmental heads, indicating importance of light for industry.

pediment and largely unaltered except for a few blocked and
altered window openings now inside large C20 extensions.

Interior: Wooden floor supported on cast-iron columns, 2 replaced
with RSJs. The floor in second bay from south end removed for
late C20 machinery. Original wooden king-post roof structure.
