Former hotel and attached house of c.1840, now converted to flats.


Former hotel and attached house. c.1840. red brick in Flemish bond, Welsh slate roof. Three-storey, three-bay hotel (No. 7) on left of lower, three-storey, one-bay house (Nos. 9 and 11).

EXTERIOR: No. 7 has a central round-headed doorway with stone imposts and a six-panelled door in a moulded frame under a multi-pane fanlight. To each side of the doorway is a bricked-up cellar window beneath ground-floor windows with projecting stone sills and gauged brick cambered arches. The first floor has similar windows in bays one and three and a central blind window. The second floor has three shorter windows. All the windows have reproduction multi-pane hung sashes. Ogee guttering and gable stacks. Nos. 9 and 11 have a basket-arched doorway with six-panelled door to the left of a centrally positioned window. Similar window on the first floor and a shorter window on the second floor. Reproduction multi-pane hung sashes. The north-east gable wall has been rebuilt with a projecting single-storey canted porch (not of special interest). Ogee guttering and gable stack.

INTERIOR: not inspected.

The properties Nos. 14 and 16 to the rear of No. 7 Millgate, are a modern extension and are not of special interest.


Both buildings were shown on the 1851 Ordnance Survey map, surveyed 1849, with the larger, left-hand property identified as 'The Golden Ball and Florist Hotel'. When first listed in 1988 the properties were derelict. At this time No. 5 (now Nos. 9 and 11) had a later wooden shop front with pilasters and door with overlight on left of plain window. Subsequent refurbishment has reinstated a ground-floor window and the windows to both properties have been given appropriate multi-pane sashes to replace the blockings and casement windows present in 1988.

Reasons for Listing

The two buildings numbered 7, 9 and 11 Millgate, Stockport, built c 1840, are designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Architectural Interest: as representative examples of mid-C19 urban architecture in Stockport
* Group Value: facing the parish church of St Mary (Grade I) and church gateway (Grade II*), and adjacent to Stockport Market, which has an 1861 Market Hall (Grade II) and various listed surrounding properties of similar or earlier dates
