GV II

Carriage arch and flanking buildings to Newton Abbot Hospital. Originally a workhouse range of 1836-1839 by Moffat and Scott. MATERIALS: incised stucco with limestone rubble to the rear, slate roofs hipped to the fronts. PLAN: Three rectangular-plan blocks connected by corridors, with pitched roof to left and mid C20 flat roof to right: entrance flanked by 2-bay links to end blocks, both one storey originally but that to west (right) heightened in late C19. EXTERIOR: one- and 2 storeys; formerly symmetrical, 2 windows to each block and to each corridor. Plinths, eaves bands and impost string courses to the three blocks, which continue on the returns. The central carriage entrance (glazed late C20) has clasping pilasters supporting entablature and pediment over tall semicircular arch with stepped voussoirs. The rear, of rubblestone has a dentil cornice below the pediment. The fronts of the flanking blocks have similar plinths, pilasters, friezes and voussoirs to 2 semicircular-arched 6/6-pane sash windows with radial glazing bars and margin panes. Right-hand block with a wider, similar block attached to the rear, probably raised to 2 storeys later C19, does not have margin panes to the first floor. Similar windows to the returns. The linking corridors are articulated by wide pilasters. Single-storey flat-roofed additions to rear, with similar pedimented feature to entry. INTERIOR: not inspected but noted as being altered. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached to the rear inner corners of the outer blocks are thick rubblestone walls approx 4m high which cant inwards to form a courtyard, meet tall square piers, turn to the rear and slope downwards to approx 1m. The courtyard now has C20 infill. The main workhouse range has been demolished. (BoE: Pevsner N & Cherry B: Devon: 586).
