windows and square-headed doorways.
The pavilions each have windows of 3 pointed lights, and
foiled circular windows within the coped gables.
The central block has glazed doorways on the ground floor,
pointed windows on the 1st floor, and a clock face within a
stone gable that is treated as a dormer.

pitched roof on iron trusses which is partly glazed and partly
slated and is carried on 4 cast-iron columns. 2 chimneys on
left-hand link, one on each gable of central block, one on
right-hand link, and one to right of right-hand pavilion. All

The side elevations have Tudor-arched gateways leading to the
central concourse and linking the front building to 2 further
pavilions in a similar style.

Large concourse area has stone-flagged floor and a
partly-glazed roof carried on iron or steel lattice trusses.
