The linear development of the former offices and workshops against the road perimeter wall, from the 1850s onwards to its final phase as shown on the late 19th century Ordnance Survey map, is demonstrated to good effect by viewing the rooflines of the buildings from the road and the perimeter wall. However conversion of these (mostly single storey) buildings for residential use has changed their character as seen from the inside of the site. Other details: Figures 17, 20, 22, site 56.
