round columns supporting a moulded basket arch; part glazed door has
3 panels and 3 lights behind barbed iron bars. Gable has an ashlar
oriel window of 3 lights; shaped kneelers and ashlar copings with
finial. Left return: 3-light and 1-light windows with sloping sills,
stop-chamfered mullions and segmentally-arched heads; original 4-pane
iron casements with central rosettes and pivotting openers. Right
return: 2-light and tripled 2-light windows in same style; decorative

Swept roof with lead rolls to hipped ends. Ridge stack to left

Kirk and Parry of Jermyn Street are listed in directories from the
mid C19. William Kirk of Nottingham (1749-1823) was followed in the
profession by his son and grandson (both named Charles) as Kirk and
Son or in-association with Parry.
Kirk and-Parry also had a flour mill off Jermyn Street but this
particular building may have served as the office for their
architectural work.
