Description on imagesofengland

BEAWORTHY HALWILL JUNCTION SX 49 NW 1/44 - Winsford Hospital 15.4.78 GV II* Small hospital. 1899-1900 by C.F.A. Voysey. Rendered walls with stone window dressings. Slate roof, hipped to left end, gabled to right and with 3 gables and the front and 2 at the rear. 7 rendered stacks, all axial apart from a front lateral stack towards the left end. The plan is very unaltered from the original with an entrance hall to the right of centre which gives access to a corridor running along the rear of the building onto which a number of small front rooms open. 2 small wings project at the rear towards either end between which a C20 sun-lounge has been built. Single storey. Asymmetrical 16 window front of 1, 2 and 3 light mullions. There is a large gable to its right; a smaller gable is to the right of centre over the entrance with another large gable immediately adjoining to its right. The 2 larger gables are extended to the rear into small wings. The front door is part glazed with a 2-light window also under the gable immediately to its left. In this gable is a plaque with an inscription commerating the founding of the hospital by Maria Medley and bearing the date 1900. Very unaltered interior with original fittings such as plank doors with their wrought iron strap hinges; decorative ventilation grills, and chimney-pieces of which the one in the hall is carved with coats of arms including those of its benefactress and another has inverted heart design. This building is a rare example in Devon of a Voysey building which still serves its original purpose and is very unaltered.
