Built in the Victorian period in the Neo-Gothic style
Stunning bluestone and polychrome brickwork combination. An early example of neo-gothic with central tower and tourelle. Gables are notably picturesque. Prominent exposed butresses are notable, as are the cathedral-like floral tracery.
This Bluestone building, designed by Messrs Crouch and Wilson and built by Mr William Ireland, is both historically and architecturally significant, and is still in use to this day.Architect: Crouch & Wilson
