cement. Slated roof with red ridge tiles. Chimney of
cream-coloured brick on each side wall.

with pilasters between and at either side supporting an
entablature. Narrower end bays each contain a round-arched
doorway with moulded archivolt and carved keystone. Doors have
3 vertical panels, the centre panel interrupted by a circular
panel in which is set a brass handle consisting of a hand
clenching a bar. Windows in 3 centre bays are of
mullioned-and-transomed lights, the mullions in the form of
fluted and twisted iron columns. The frieze above has raised
panels, 2 of them circular and decorated with a flower.
Upper-storey windows are segmental-headed with moulded brick
arches and keystones; moulded cills. Plain sashes with horns.
The 2 end bays are flanked by pilasters, and there is a raised
brick band at 2nd-floor level. Coved eaves cornice. INTERIOR

The building was erected for the Barnstaple Bridge Trust and
appears to have been designed as offices, making it an early
example of provincial office architecture. Included for group
value.
