Hockley B1
No 28
SP 0687 SW 28/20
C1859, an early purpose built jewellery works, erected on a domestic plot.
Three storeys red brick with an early use of Gothic detailing, quite
elaborately modelled for a modest 3 bay front of this kind. Stone and gault
brick dressings. Ground floor has flanking office and works doorways with a
transomed 3 light colonetted central window. Sill bands to first and second floors.
The arched first floor windows are grouped in a panel, the foliate carving to
the caps of the dividing piers continued as impost string across front. The
head of the panel has bricks cut as if part of a billet mould and the same
pattern occurs below the dentil brick eaves cornice, across the flat head of
the second floor triple group of windows, also set in a panel with Gothic
carving to the caps of the dividing piers.
