The Fiery Beacon
House in row, with art gallery. Mid Cl9 front, but C18 work behind. Limestone
ashlar, slate roof. At narrow frontage set gable to street, in a Tudor Gothic
front to an earlier body: steep gable drops to short haunches. One window width
in 4 storeys; to ground and first floors a wide, square bay with battlements,
central recessed glazed door in 4-centred opening flanked by single pointed
lights all to square head, with small buttresses in 2 offsets at corners, above
this a 4-light stone mullioned casement, pointed heads under square opening to
moulding below battlements, and single light returns. At second floor a
2-light, and in gable single light Tudor windows set to stopped hood moulds. At
the back of the building a bull's-eye opening above a 12-pane C18 sash. To the
right a large square stack. A very attractive little composition acting as a
foil to the grand Beacon House (qv) adjoining.
