Former Transporter Bridge Power House

Small red sandstone rectangular building built on three levels, 1901. Twin steeply pitched slate hipped roofs, with ridge terminal finials, now over-covered with green felt. Upper storey, at former bridge level, has Gibbs surrounds to door and window openings, a stone moulded cornice with modillions and a torus moulded plinth. The lower levels are rock faced and there is a white glazed tiled tunnel with rusticated external arch at the lowest level. This is one of three support buildings which survive the Transporter Bridge, closed in 1961. Now used as an Electricity Board Sub-Station.
