featured centre bay framed by narrow panelled pilasters with composite
caps (now painted), similar pilasters to the ends, moulded sill-bands to
both upper floors, a frieze of moulded terracotta swags and a moulded
cornice. The centre bay has a doorway with pilastered architrave,
moulded cornice and an overlight of 3 round-headed stained glass lights
flanked by consoles; at 1st floor a prominent canted oriel which has a
panelled apron lettered STATION HOTEL , transomed side windows, a
round-headed centre window with keystone fluted in the frieze, and a
moulded cornice with segmental pediment; and above the eaves an
elaborate Dutch gable with panel lettered STATION HOTEL , a terracotta

and slim wooden baluster mullions; to the right, a full-width
plate-glass window of 3 rectangular lights with similar baluster
mullions, elliptical overlights with radiating glazing bars and foliated
spandrels. Both upper floors have sashed windows without glazing bars,
all with foliated terracotta aprons and emphatic architraves, those at
1st floor with cornices on consoles and those at 2nd floor
segmental-headed with shouldered architraves and keystones. No.42 to the
right has an original tripartite shop-front at ground floor with
recessed entrance to left and plate-glass windows, and upper floors with
fenestration matching No.44. INTERIOR: Station Hotel retains layout of
c.1900 almost unaltered, principally a panelled island bar with curved
corners. Forms group with Clock Tower (q.v.) and with Nos 1 to 11
(Stamford House) opposite, together marking northern boundary of
