openings, renewed slate roof with skylights, barge and eaves
boards, internally hollow cast-iron columns and renewed timber
or concrete slab floors.

in each gable-end wall a central former loading door opening,
and in wall to each side two windows to each floor; all the
former loading door openings infilled with late C20 windows
