WEYMOUTH

SY6778NE LOWER ST EDMUND STREET
873-1/23/214 (South side)
14/06/74 No.4
Granary Quay
(Formerly Listed as:
LOWER ST EDMUND STREET
Warehouse adjacent to Oliver
Brothers on west side)

GV II

Warehouse, now apartments. Early C19. Coursed and squared
Portland stone, slate roof. A large warehouse, with frontages
to North Quay and St Nicholas Street as well as Lower St
Edmund Street.
EXTERIOR: the Quay front is 4 storeys, with 3 windows and one
doorway to each of the top 3 floors; all 2-light C20 casements
to the original segmental voussoir heads and stone sills. The
3rd bay contains C20 glazed doors in the former loading bays,
with a balcony and slight iron balustrade. At the ground floor
has 2 doorways with segmental heads, and, to the right, a wide
garage door. The full width haunched coped gable has a small
oculus, and a string course below the kneelers.
The return to St Nicholas Street has 3x3 two-light casements
as the front, and at ground floor a square opening and 2
lights with flush voussoirs, and the Lower St Edmund Street
front has 3 bays with deep-set casements to segmental heads,
and small balconies. Ground floor has a square-headed opening
with a pair of doors. The roof is hipped at this end, to a
plain eaves.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
Originally a grain warehouse, an early C20 photograph in the
NMR shows the building neglected, and hung with various
advertisement hoardings. With No.2 (qv) adjoining, it was
carefully restored in the late C20, 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.
