GV II

Bank and office. Probably late 1860s. Flemish bond brick, left
end rendered with stone dressings; slate roof; axial stack
with corbelled brick shaft and multiple pots. High Victorian
eclectic, a mixture of Italianate and Egyptian.
Plan: Double depth plan with the banking hall to the left
front.
Exterior: 3 storeys. 5:3-bay front.Front treated as 2
compositions, divided by a wider bay with a cast iron
down-pipe, but in a matching style, the bank slightly more
elaborate.Roof with deep eaves on acanthus carved brackets.
Moulded strings at first and second floor sill level; all
windows and doors in architraves with rounded upper corners;
blind slits in the brickwork between each bay. Bank
symmetrical above the ground floor. Banking hall has a central
door with a grandiose porch with pilasters with
acanthus-carved capitals, panelled stone band over lintel
extends to left and right and rises over door and window
openings where it is decorated with carved rosettes. Moulded
keyblock over lintel; curved, corbelled stone porch hood with
moulded cornice forms first floor balcony with iron
balustrade. Large window to banking hall to the right, glazed
with a C20 timber 3-light transomed casement. One-light window
to the left, similarly glazed. Doorway to extreme left with
steps up to a pnelled door with a deep overlight. 5 first
floor original 2-pane sashes linked under a cornice on pairs
of richly-moulded consoles. Segmental pediment over the centre
window, the consoles carved with bearded heads. Stone band,
decorated with carved rosettes, extends across the front below
the cornice and rises above the windows which have
shield-shaped keystones. First floor windows consistent across
the whole 8-bay front: 2-pane sashes with a stone band similar
to the other storeys, carved with rosettes above the windows,
and round-headed sunk panels between them. The 3-bay office to
the right has a similar, but somewhat plainer front. Central
recessed doorway with steps up to an original panelled 2-leaf
door with a deep overlight. 2-pane sashes to left and right. 3
first floor 2-pane sashes under a cornice, but here without a
pediment. Second floor windows described above.
Interior: Not inspected but may retain features of interest.
This large, heavily-decorated, high Victorian building is an
important foil to the plainer C18 houses in the High Street.
