Co-operative store. 1885. Dressed stone with ashlar dressings. Welsh slate

corner bay, and 7 bays to Market Street. The ground floor is covered by applied

above which is a 1st- and 2nd-floor round oriel, with a 3-light mullioned and
transomed window to each floor. The apron of the 1st-floor window has the words
'ESTABLISHED 1862' in raised letters. The oriel is surmounted by a slender-conical
slated spire with iron crest. The bays of the Wellington Street elevation have
windows of 2, one and one lights in raised surrounds, the multiple-light windows
being mullioned and transomed. Above the 3-light window, at 2nd-floor level, is
a double transomed 3-light window which rises above eaves level and is surmounted
by a blind pedimented dormer with swept support and ball finials. The frieze
between 1st- and 2nd-floor windows and extending into the corner bay reads, in
raised letters: 'BARNSLEY BRITISH CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETY LIMITED'. Moulded cornice
and parapet. The Market Street elevation is similar with bays of 1, 3, 12, 1, 3
and 1 lights. Again the 3-light transomed windows become double transomed windows
at 2nd-floor level and are surmounted by blind pedimented dormers. To the far
right is a contemporary wrought-iron gate to a cart entry. Built as offices, hall,
reading room and central butchering department. Included for group value.
