McWhannell and Rogerson, 1904. Free Scots Renaissance burgh building with prominent tower, crowstepped gable and figurative sculpture. Coursed bull-faced red sandstone with polished ashlar dressings.
NW (PRINCIPAL) ELEVATION: to Main Street. Tall, engaged circular clock tower to R rising above roofline with fluted pilastered entrance at base; entablatured niche above with personification of Justice ('Justitia?); balconette (containing maquet of town crier) with pilastered surround and strapwork above; corbelled semi-circular balconette, gabletted and breaking eaves; flanking clock faces; further balconette to rear; conical roof. Four windows to ground; canted oriel above to L with headstopped roll-moulded surrounds; sculpted figure of Justice above; eagle to R at side of tower.
Timber sash and case plate glass windows (some leaded upper sashes). Grey slates; terracotta ridge tiles; red tiles to conical roof. Cast-iron rainwater goods with decorative hoppers.
INTERIOR: not seen (2004).
B-Group with Burgh Chambers (separately listed). Barrhead was created a police burgh in 1894. The exuberant style of the Burgh Court and Chambers in distinctive red sandstone set the buildings apart from the other traditional buildings that survive in Main Street. Built as a pair with a lane between for access to the rear, the two buildings are linked by wrought-iron gates with thistle and lion rampant motifs.
