1905-6 by B Parker and R Unwin. The first public building in the Garden City,
and built as a memorial to Ebenezer Howard's first wife. The composition
is a smaller scale version of Edgar Wood's Church of Christ Scientist at Manchester.
Extended to the north-east by an L-shaped wing in 1907. Two storeys. Symmetrical
entrance front in a distinctly eclectic manner with projecting gabled bays
flanking higher central range. Hipped tiled roofs with free Tudor brick chimney
shafts. Roughcast walls. Gabled bays partly tile-hung. Five-light, central
dormer window below eaves of central range. Three plain windows with loops
above in gables of projecting bays. Entrance with moulded brick surround
and segmental arched doorway with double doors. Interior with exposed Queen
Post roof and inglenook with elliptical brick arch. The extendable classroom/clubroom
with its diagonally set platform is an early example of multi-use space in
a public building.
