roof. Free classical style. 3 storeys. 4 bays to Wellington Street, one
corner bay, and 7 bays to Market Street. The ground floor is covered by applied

'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
