Bank. 1897, designed by Demaine and Brierley. Ashlar with slate roof and copper
dome. Two storeys plus basement and attic storey. 6 bays to High Street elevation,
angled corner bay, and 4 bay elevation to Baxter Gate. Rectangular on plan.
Entrance to banking hall from corner bay, and entrance to offices on upper floors
to right of High Street elevation. Plinth. Bays are divided by giant engaged Ionic
columns on deep rusticated plinths which rise to impost level of ground floor
windows, similar paired columns to ends of each facade. High Street elevation has
six segmental-headed basement windows with radiating voussoirs and triple keystones
which rise up to level of the wide moulded sills of ground floor semi-circular
headed windows with bronze glazing bars. These are set in surrounds with panelled
pilasters, below moulded archivolts broken by raised radiating voussoirs which splay
out to moulded stringcourses that are ramped down to each side. To far right below
the paired columns is a pedimented doorcase with moulded architrave, set in
projecting rusticated stonework. First floor has six segmental-headed plate-glass
sashes in eared and keyed architraves, with wide moulded sills set on large moulded
brackets. Columns support full entablature with modillioned cornice. Attic storey
has six unequally hung 9-pane sashes in architraves and flush parapets with moulded
copings. Between the windows are elaborate dated cast iron hopper heads to gutters
and to far left over the end paired columns are a pair of C18 style female statues
on moulded plinths. Baxter Gate elevation has very similar elevation but with
statues to right-hand side. Corner bay has C20 doors in pilastered surround with
radiating voussoirs, similar to side windows, but with large lions-head keystone
supporting curved balustraded balcony over to glazed doors set in pilastered and
pedimented surround. Entablature and unequally hung 9-pane attic sash in architrave
above. Roofs have stone coped gables and large corniced ashlar end and ridge
stacks, plus large octagonal dome to corner with statue of Eros surmounting small
cupola to top.
