This studious cherub in red terracotta is surrounded by scientific instrument and artist's tools. The light fitting looks to be original as well. Locally listed

Built in 1896 for the promotion of Science and Art, as shown on the main facade. Now in a sad state of dereliction. A magnificent example of decorative terracotta work. Locally listed but clearly of very uncertain future.
