Extant Building


1989-92 by Hugh Martin & Partners. The west part is stone with simplified classical detail and an uncomfortably proportioned dome to the atrium. It respects Grainger's work but is unconvincing because the form is at odds with style. Heavy-looking Art Nouveau ironwork at the entrance and in the dome. The east part has a dome of glazed lacy metal and picks up some motifs from the 1930s white-faience building (Burton's) it replaced. Between them are three tall narrow listed facades, No. 30 is by Marshall & Tweedy 1902 (HER 8904), Nos. 22 (HER 9017) and 18 (HER 9142) are by James Cackett 1892 and 1895 {McCombie}.
