Full description

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

This is a group of four, two-storey brick buildings constructed in 1971 as a matron's and resident doctors' accommodation. They are terraced into the hillside, with garages and stores on the semi-basement level and living accommodation above. The eastern building is detached from the others. They are constructed of red brick with rendered front ground floors and rear upper floors, under a ceramic tiled roof. They appear to be of cavity wall construction since concrete blocks are visible within the ground floor rooms. The ground-floor garage of the eastern building has been converted into further living accommodation, and has concrete block internal partitions. Light is provided by opening steel-framed windows of varying sizes.
Internally, the buildings have typical late 20th-century fixtures and fittings, with the only architectural
embellishments being wide curved cornices in the bedrooms.
