Assessment

  • Condition of Structure: Poor

Appraisal

This building has been vacant for a number of years and does not appear to be maintained. Most of the external fabric remains, but there are obvious signs of deterioration, particularly water penetration, slipped slates, vegetation growth, broken windows and vandalism. There is no immediate danger of collapse but the condition is such that unless urgent remedial works are carried out the building will sharply deteriorate.

The structure is of significant historic importance and requires conservation works to prevent further deterioration. This building urgently requires new uses to be identified to prevent further deterioration of its character.
