SD4761NE NEW ROAD
1685-1/7/198 (West side)
Warehouse and office. c1885. Coursed sandstone rubble with
ashlar bands at the level of each floor. Slate roofs. Roughly
square double-depth plan with the office entrance on New Road,
and a 2-span roof with gables and chimney stacks to New Road.
5 storeys above cellars, with 2 bays on the New Road frontage
and 4 bays around the corner on the right facing Damside
The New Road facade is articulated by shallow pilaster strips,
from which segmental arches with rusticated voussoirs spring
just below a line of corbels carrying the gutter across the
base of the gables. The entrance doorway is placed within the
central pilaster strip under a pediment whose cornice extends
as a band across the facade. On either side there are paired
windows on the ground floor, with single windows on each of
the upper floors.
The side facing Damside Street continues the system of
articulation on New Road for one bay. Then follow 2 bays,
containing a pair of full-height, slightly altered, recessed
loading bays with round-headed arches under strongly
projecting gables carried on brackets, and a narrow fourth bay
with openings similar to those in the first bay. The windows
have sliding sashes, with glazing bars in most of the windows
to the upper storeys.
