Dispensary and hospital, now hospital. 1879-91, by Lewis and
Crawcroft. Red brick with polychrome bands, steeply-pitched
hipped slate roofs. Irregular plan. Gothic style. Three
storeys and basements, 1:1:3:1:1 bays, symmetrical, the 3-bay
centre and the ends projecting. The centre bay, treated as a
4-stage tower, breaks forwards slightly, has a 2-centred
arched doorway with shafts, the arch inscribed "ANCOATS
HOSPITAL" and an arched extrados band inscribed "ARDWICK AND
ANCOATS DISPENSARY", 2-light windows to the 1st and 2nd
floors, weathered coping with stone turrets, and an elaborate
turret with an oculus and tall oversailing parapet with corner
tourelles (and formerly a saddle-back roof). All the windows
have narrow arched lights with polychrome heads and impost
bands, all those of the 3-bay centre with shafts: the ground
floor has mostly 3-light windows and the 1st floor has mostly
2-light windows, but the recessed bays which have 4 and
3-light windows to these floors; the 2nd floor has 2-light
