Premises of Lloyds Bank. Rebuilt for Robert Carss between 1795
and 1797 on the site of the premises of Messrs Spink & Carss,
drapers and bankers. White brick, with Ketton stone dressings;
slate roof with cornice and parapet.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellars. 5 window range, 12-pane
sashes in plain reveals. A stone band below the 1st storey
windows and a deep stone band above them with LLOYDS BANK
LIMITED in large lettering. 3 wide 3-light ground-storey
windows have elliptical arched brick openings with the upper
part blocked and ornamented with delicate simulated Adam style
glazing. 2 semicircular arched doorways have good fanlights,
also in Adam style. From 1829 to 1899 these were the premises
of Oakes, Bevan & Co.'s Bank and the earlier association is
commemorated in the wrought-iron hanging sign attached to the
front. This has the date 1795 and is decorated with
scroll-work and painted in green and gold. At the top is an
oak tree and above the words LLOYDS BANK LIMITED is a gilded
INTERIOR: no visible original features inside, apart from the
upper flights of the late C18/early C19 stair of the former
bank house at the south end of the building, with bracketed
open strings, stick balusters and an inlaid ramped handrail.
All the stonework for the building, both inside and out, was
supplied by the Bury St Edmunds stonemason John de Carle:
details are in his account books in the Bury & West Suffolk
Record Office.
