Britannia Buildings
(formerly listed as Premises Formerly Occupied by the Halifax and Huddersfield Banking Company)

Former bank, 1893 by E. W. Johnson of Southport for the Halifax and Huddersfield Banking Company. Ashlar, with Aberdeen granite columns. Giant Corinthian order standing on plinth carrying rich entablature and balustrade carrying urns. Pilasters at the outer end and coupled columns to the centre support a pediment which breaks forward with enriched frieze and tympanum. In the tympanum is a cartouche. At the apex of the pediment is a large figure of Britannia. Beneath is a three-light window with foliated consoles as mullions. The doorway is altered but has modillioned pediment over. The side panels have richly carved coats of arms, Halifax to the left. Prominently sited at the head of Elland Bridge.
