Listing Text


873-1/23/213 (South side)
14/06/74 No.2
Granary Quay
(Formerly Listed as:
Oliver Brothers Shop and Store)


Warehouse, now apartments. Late C18 or early C19. Portland
stone rubble, slate roof.
4 storeys, the principal facade, to North Quay, has 2-light
C20 casements to wood lintels, each side of paired central
glazed doors, to wood lintels and with balconies with iron
railings. Ground floor has 2 wide arched openings with
segmental heads, voussoirs and glazed doors and side-lights.
The gable is coped, with a small oculus, and a string below
the kneeler level.
The front to Lower St Edmund Street is also in 4 floors, with
2-light casements flanking doors with small balconies, all to
wood lintels. At the ground floor is one 4-light casement, and
a plank door, to the left, and a small 4-light to the right.
The roof at this end is hipped, to a plain eaves.
INTERIOR: has been completely sub-divided for residential use.
The building was originally a grain warehouse, and had become
neglected through disuse; an undated early C20 photograph in
the NMR shows it, without the upper gable and top floor to the
Quay. In the late C20 the building has been carefully restored
(with No.4 adjoining (qv)) and put into use as apartments,
thus reviving a part of the harbour frontage at risk of
decline. A Weymouth Civic Society plaque acknowledges the
value of this piece of conservation work.
