Introduction

 

This building is in an area to the south of the town centre, in a tarmac precinct surrounded by a low red brick wall surmounted by iron railings. The glass panelled porch on the principal (east) elevation may be a later addition.


Description

The building is of red brick with a modern concrete tiled roof,

The east elevation has an advanced bay on the north side with a window at first floor level on the return to the south.    At the south side of the east wall there is a full length uPVC panel with a window at ground and first floor levels.   In the centre of the elevation is an advanced single storey slate roofed glass panelled gabled porch.   The roof of the east gable is more steeply pitched on the north side above the advanced bay than on the south side, where it is more gently sloping.

There are six slightly set back bays in the south elevation filled with uPVC panels in which there are windows at ground and first floor level, excluding the easternmost and central bays which have timber and glass panel doors at ground floor level.    There are down pipes along the wall at the side of each of the window bays.

In the west elevation two slightly set back bays have uPVC framed windows.

The central bay of the three bay north elevation is slightly advanced from the outer two bays. In the westernmost bay there is a louvered double door with a double window above this at first floor level which is covered by metal bars. There are three full length uPVC panels in the central bay which have windows at ground and first floor level. There are three further such panels in the easternmost bay.   A satellite dish is attached to the wall in this bay. A number of down pipes are along this wall.
