The Warneford Hospital: Nurses' Home


Nurses` home at asylum. 1913-14, by N.W. Harrison; extended later C20. Limestone ashlar. Slate hipped roof with lead rolled hips and ridge. Central axial ashlar stack with arch linking two shafts with moulded cornices. PLAN: Rectangular on plan with entrance at the centre of the SE front. Later C20 single-storey extension on north corner. Neo-Georgian style. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys. The centre bays of three of the elevations have deeply overhanging bracketed eaves, while the broad turret-like corners are blind and have parapets with moulded cornices. South east front has 3-bay centre with 12-pane sashes, the first floor in moulded architraves, the ground floor with low round-arched `Diocletion` doorway with side-lights and keystone rising through the first floor band above; large stone canted bay window on left. NE elevation is similar, but narrower, composition, the left corner `turret` is broader and has slightly recessed corner. The NW, rear, is similar to the front, but the fenestration is asymmetrical and there is no bay window. The SW side, 1:3:1 bays, the centre advanced with a moulded stone cornice to the hipped roof; later C20 fire escape. Later C20 single-storey extension obscures part of the ground storeys of the NW and NE elevations.
