Built in the 1930s, this building replicates the Georgian style of many of Bristol’s most ornate buildings. The concrete frame is clad with very wide, thin bricks, with Portland stone dressings and a leaded hipped roof topped with gilded unicorns. The grand ceremonial entrance overlooks a moat, with a Italian marble reception hall inside.
