1904-5. A relatively utilitarian structure with an exceptionally elaborate front.
Red brick, with orange moulded terracotta dressings. Slate roof. One storey, with
2 storey centre piece. This fronts a pyramidally roofed foyer with an ornamental
glazed tile interior, and a glazed clerestory roof: parapet, rising to central
cartouche, and flanked by pilasters, outer ones with ball finials. Round-arched
doorway, with segment-shaped transom, flanked by pilasters, then round-arched
side-lights. Porte cochere with depressed arches between massive piers with
diagonally-placed buttresses rising to complex finials. Mullion and transom windows
either side, 4 bays to east, 3 to west, nearest bays with segmental pediments in
parapet. Rainwater heads dated 1904, and case iron downpipes.
Exceptionally inventive moulded terracotta ornament covering the whole front, mainly
Arts and Crafts in character, but in parts distinctly Art Nouveau.

Charter. It was opened in 1905 by Princess Henry of Battenberg, accompanied by
Princess Ena (subsequently the last Queen of Spain).
