SE30NW BARNSLEY NEW STREET
3/48 No 33
Co-operative shop. 1911. Stone building clad in glazed tiles. Baroque style.
Three storeys. 5 x 5 bays with one corner bay. Ground floor covered or replaced
by c1970s. Shop fronts: entrance in corner bay, above which the 1st and 2nd
floors are framed by buttresses. 3-light rounded window to each floor between
which is a square cartouche with raised Art Nouveau letters reading 'BARNSLEY
BRITISH CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETY LIMITED'. This bay is surmounted by a lion.
The New Street elevation is symmetrical with central canted bay to 1st and 2nd
floors. Wide, elliptical-headed 1st-floor windows and segmental-headed 2nd-floor
windows with wide alternately blocked common jambs and voussoirs. At 1st-floor
impost level heavy paired brackets support square bases to ball finials. The
2nd-floor sill band is moulded and is swept over the deeply articulated facade.
Cartouches with figure heads surmount the 2nd-floor window jambs. A deep,
moulded and modillioned eaves cornice supports the deep parapet which is
alternately panelled and balustraded, the bays separated by square piers. The
Market Street elevation is similar but bays 1 and 3 have broad tripartite windows
with round-arched central lights, the cornice following over as an open segmental
pediment, the keystones large and elaborate and projecting through the tympanum
of the pediment.
A good and elaborate example of the type. The building replaced an original
building of 1865, as the central grocery department.
The Barnsley British Co-operative society was founded in 1862.
