Formerly known as: Warehouse occupied by Yaar Signs Printers COLLIER STREET. Public baths, latterly in use as warehouse, now disused. Dated 1855. By Thomas Worthington. Brick with stone dressings and Welsh slate roof. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with central 5-bay attic storey. 13-window range symmetrically designed. Entrances in 4th bay each side, one now blocked, the other retaining paired panelled doors. Ground floor forms continuous range of stone dressed arcading, with stepped voussoirs over round-arched recesses housing entrances and windows, each with console as keystone carrying cornice above. Stressed angle quoins. Upper storey articulated by brick pilasters with plain stone capitals, the windows set in stone architraves in shallow recesses. Coats of arms in blind panels each side. Central attic storey has arcaded range of 5 round-arched windows divided by brick and stone pilasters, with paired brackets carrying sharply overhanging eaves. End wall stacks on this projecting storey and on outer gable ends.To rear are the former baths with twin-span part-glazed roofs. INTERIOR: bath areas remaining with the roofs supported by rare early laminated timber trusses. Semicircular arch-braces springing from cantilevered iron consoles support the principal rafters. The spandrels are infilled with wooden cross-bracing. These baths are an important survival of early purpose built public baths. (Pass A: Thomas Worthington: 76-9).
