Commercial building, probably textiles warehouse; now offices.
1888-91, by Alfred Waterhouse. Sandstone ashlar, slate roof.
Rectangular plan on end-of-block site, with curved corners,
and loading bay to rear. Eclectic style, with some Gothic
features. Three storeys with basement and attic, 5 unequal
bays plus the corners, symmetrical; with sill-bands and
string-courses to all floors, Lombard frieze over 2nd floor,
slender brackets to moulded cornice, and blind-arcaded parapet
interrupted by gabled attic dormers. The centre bay has a
large square-headed entrance with arched chamfered doorway and
recessed double doors, and over this a bracketed stone balcony
with ornamental iron railings. The windows of all floors
(including the basement) are of 2, 3, 2, 3 and 2 lights, those
to the basement square-headed and furnished with iron bar
grilles, those of the 3 main floors with stilted shouldered
heads and colonnettes which have knobbly foliated caps and
square abaci, and all sashed without glazing bars; the curved
corners have matching 3-light fenestration, with curved
glazing; and the attic dormers have coped gables with
kneelers, ball-finials on the apexes and the kneelers, and
windows with altered glazing. Mansard roof with side-wall
chimneys. Returned sides similar, the left with a
segmental-headed loading bay entrance to the rear bay.
