3/10024 MOD Building L141
Sorting House. 1889. English bond yellow brick with red brick bands; brick-coped gables to slate roof over brick-vaulted roof. Rectangular plan. One storey. Inserted concrete lintel over doorway in west gable end, originally served by iron tramway. Segmental brick arches over 4-light windows to north and south elevations. Similar in design to the expense magazine L154 (qv). It is only referred to in the documentary sources as a "sorting house", and was clearly
intimately associated with the manufacture of gunpowder and cordite for it to have a raised door served by the railway system. (RCHME report, 1993).
