Brick with stucco dressings and quoins. 3 storeys with projecting 2 storey end pavilions. Symmetrical composition of 14 main bays. Central 4 bays project; central round-arched entrance with keystone and pilasters supporting a cornice, which continues across the front of the buildings, and scroll pediment. Segmental headed sashes with stucco hoods and keystones. Projecting cornice with paired brackets; central bays with pediment containing an oculus with stucco scroll design surround. End pavilions with groups of 3 similar windows at 1st floor level, the centre window taller and surmounted by a ball. Open pediments. Rear elevation, in similar style, of interest. INTERIOR: plain.

HISTORICAL NOTE: the workhouse was turned over wholly to hospital use in 1915 and, until its closure in 1987 was used as a general, and finally as a geriatric, hospital. The former workhouse block forms a notable group with the New End Hospital Circular Ward & attached Water Tower (qv), the Boilerhouse Chimney (qv) and the Infirmary Block (qv), which together demonstrate the history of Poor Law provision for the sick and elderly through the nineteenth century.
