TEME STREET (east side)
Temeside House

(Formerly listed as Former Tenbury Local District Council Offices)

Union workhouse, later Tenbury RDC offices, now police, fire station and local authority offices. Dated 1837 and altered 1937. Brick with ashlar dressings, slate roof, gable-end parapets with kneelers and shaped finials to front, brick ridge stacks and two diagonally set brick stacks to rear. Part two storeys, part single storey and attic with dormers.

Main west elevation articulated a:b:c:b:a. Outer bays have two ground floor two-light casements and two gabled dormers with two-light casements. The two dormers at the left end have scalloped bargeboards. The two right end bays have had the ground floor windows replaced by a large C20 doorway to provide access for the fire engine and a small single storey wing added. The adjacent inner bays have full-height projecting gabled wings with three-light first floor casements, blind loopholes in the apex of each gable and doorways with Tudor-arched heads and studded C20 doors. There are two-light ground floor windows in the angles. The central bay is also gabled and has a three-light casement in both main floors; the first floor window is flanked by single-light casements.

Above the ground floor window is a plaque inscribed "TENBURY RURAL/ DISTRICT COUNCIL/ REMODELLED 1937". The gable above has a datestone recessed within a square ashlar border inscribed "UNION/ WORKHOUSE/ ERECTED/ 1837". The rear elevation appears to be largely unaltered.
