Full description

Passmore, A. J. + Jones, P., 05/2013, Former Newton Abbot Hospital, Devon, Results of Historic Building Recording (Report - Survey). SDV351393.

This single-storey building is situated to the north of building C and connected to it by a walkway. The
latter is constructed from a mixture of yellow brick and wooden frames with wood and glass panels as well as open sections. All are likely to date to the later 20th century. The building was constructed circa 1897, and replaces the central hub buildings of the 1830s workhouse. It is constructed of limestone with four tall, shallow arch headed windows in its east and west elevations. These are divided into four by mullions and transoms. The six-pane upper lights are fixed whereas the larger windows below have horned sashes. In its north elevation is a large opening containing modern frosted glass panes.
The building was constructed as a dining room, and was latterly used as a store. The only surviving
fitting is tongue-and-grooved panelling to the lower walls with a dado rail above. The room has a modern suspended ceiling concealing the original roof structure. This is hipped and formed from wooden trusses, 2-part trenched collars and trenched purlins, supported by iron or steel frames below. The interior of the roof is lined with lath and plaster.
