NOTES: The circular shape of the building was derived from its use of the concrete slab from a demolished gasholder as its foundation. The walls are faced with local stone and roof is steel and plywood. Apparently self supporting, the roof sits upon the masonry wall, but is firmly anchored by steel bars that rise the height of the wall from the foundations and penetrate the pre-cast concrete padstones on which the roof sits.
