In the entry for:- CLAPHAM ROAD SW9 TQ 3177 (East Side) 8/1081 The Belgrave Hospital for Children The grade shall be upgraded to grade II* ------------------------------------ CLAPHAM ROAD SW9 1. (east side) 5023 The Belgrave Hospital TQ 3177 8/1081 for Children II 2. 1903 by Charles Holden. Red brick in a castle style with Scottish touches: romantic but austere. Four storeys and basement. North front to Prima Road has a wide gabled central bay with a 3-storey canted projection having rebated angles and large stone mullioned and double transomed windows, echoing the C17. From these run balconies on many-corbelled brick brackets giving access to narrow, recessed staircase bays. The outer bays are slightly projecting square corner turrets. At left, one and 2-storey wings end in a more hospitable doorway with a stone hood on big brackets. The main west front deploys the same elements on a grander scale. The gable is partly stepped and the "turrets" battlemented. Tall, projecting 2-storey frontispiece has name of hospital in large period lettering. Round arched stone entrance under a shallow corbel table has gold mosaic dressings to inner and outer arches. Wrought iron area railings have hollow square piers with ball finials.
