II

Carriage works, now offices. 1905, upper floors 1909. Cast-
and wrought-iron frame, brick and render. Rectangular plan.
Cast-iron columns with flared capitals to the lower 2 floors,
with glazed infill; upper floors have columns encased with
brick, separated by timber cornices, and half-glazed above
rendered panels; doors with margin and overlights in the left
and 2 right panels.
INTERIOR: ground- and first-floor cast-iron columns to paired
timber beams with wrought-iron flitches braced by wrought-iron
ties, plain dogleg stairs at either end. '...historically a
building of much interest, maintaining the intermittent thread
from the structural experiments of the 1840s to the hegemony
of the steel or concrete frame a century later' (Gomme).
