Hospital. 1909, by John Ely. Red brick with matching
terracotta dressings, slate roofs. Extended E-plan formed by
main range parallel to street with 3 slightly-radiating ward
blocks to the rear. Diluted Edwardian Baroque style. Three
storeys with basement and attics, 7 bays (3:2:3:3:3:2:2
windows at 1st floor), symmetrical, the centre bay wider,
those flanking it breaking forwards slightly and gabled, and
the end bays canted; with a 1st-floor band, modillioned
cornice and balustraded parapet. The centre has steps up to a
wide central entrance with an architrave of coupled fluted
Tuscan columns on pedestals with triglyph frieze and broken
segmental pediment, and a round-headed doorway with raised
run-out voussoirs and keystone, and coupled windows in a
pedimented architrave above this. The gabled bays have 4-light
windows at 2nd floor, segmental pediments over the cornice,
and attic gables with 2-light windows and apex finials. The
canted end bays have octagonal turrets with domed lead roofs.
All the windows have keystones, those at 1st floor have
shouldered architraves and cornices, and those at 2nd floor
are paired and have similar architraves; those at 1st and 2nd
floor are sashed with glazing bars but those at ground floor
have altered glazing. Returned ends and rear wings in similar
style. Interior not inspected. Forms group with Royal
