2. Mid C19. Pink brick. Ashlar dressings. Pitched slate roof. Two storeys. First floor string. Two principal bays, each with 3 round-headed lancets, those on first floor set within giant semi-circular relieving arches, and each bay crowned by moulded gable. Between these, and taken slightly higher, is a pedimented centrepiece with a round-headed window with shafted reveals and moulded voussoirs. Two outer bays, gabled on end elevations, with paired round-arched lancets on first floor and round-headed doors on ground floor. Typical of the best contemporary classicism, and apparently aware of French examples, such as Hittoff's Gare du Nord, Paris.
