Premises of National Union of Miners (Yorkshire Headquarters). 1874 by
Wade and Turner. Pitch-faced stone with ashlar dressings. Welsh slate roof.
Two storeys and attics. An ordered but asymmetrical composition comprising

The Huddersfield Road facade has a single-storey square stone porch to bay 3
with arched entrance, engaged colonnettes and small parapet. Ground-floor
windows are segmental-headed. 1st-floor windows are round-arched with hoodmoulds.
Above the doorway the window has elaborate ashlar work to the head and is
surmounted by an attic gable. Bay 1 has a round, 1st-floor oriel window on an
ashlar pedestal. Bay 4 has an attic storey with 2-light, pointed-arched windows
with pavilion roof which has a broad stack to its right side and large corner
finials. Bays 5, 6 and 7 are treated slightly differently, with central doorway,
paired lights to left and a 3-light canted bay to right. The windows have
shouldered heads and deep triangular hoodmoulds. Bay 7 breaks forward slightly
and is gabled. The Victoria Road facade is treated similarly to bays 5, 6 and
7 on Huddersfield Road, apart from bay 4 which is a round tower with narrow
windows and a conical roof. The 4-bay rounded corner has segmental-headed
ground-floor windows, round-arched lst-floor windows with hoodmoulds and a
conical roof with 3 round dormers with scrolled supports and iron cresting to
apex. Moulded stone gutter brackets (parapets to rounded bays with iron cresting).
