with Roman cement; Welsh slate roofs. The buildings lie to the rear and left side
of the Main Building (q.v) and link it to the Great Engine House (q.v). Immediately
behind the Main Building is the original boiler house with coal store beyond, of
1836-8. When the Great Engine House was built 1845-6 a linking corridor was also
built, running to it from the east side of the boiler house. Probably c1855-9 a
second boiler house was built behind the linking corridor. 1890-91 a steam engine
house was built along the left (west) side of the Main Building with a high-pressure
boiler house behind, further (later) addition beyond that. Behind the
original coal store is 89 addition which is not of special interest. Link
corridor (south elevation) of one storey, 3 bays, has round-arched arcade with
archivolts linked by impost band, double board door up steps on left, and
2 small-pane windows. The later boiler house east elevation has 6 bays under
2 gables; below each gable a central doorway with fanlight flanked by windows in
recesses with 2 small circular windows over; left bay retains original small-pane
window, others altered; left doorway has double board door, right doorway enlarged;
openings have archivolts linked by moulded impost band; gabled ridge lights; 4-bay
north elevation has segmental-arched windows in recesses and impost band. The
1890-91 range, west elevation, of 2 and 5 bays, has chamfered black brick plinth,
board doors, 12-pane windows with pivoting casements and stone cills and lintels,
stepped eaves; porch added at left (north) end. 1836-38 Boiler House and Coal Store
largely masked by other buildings, but on east side at south end are 2 round-arched
windows with glazing bars, and inside are other oringal round-arched openings, the
coal store north wall having also pilaster butresses. The early boiler house has
iron columns, braced steel trusses, and a gabled ridge light.
