Listing Text


1685-1/7/305 (East side)


Coach house, now part of printing works. Late C18, altered
early C19 and C20. Sandstone ashlar, with coursed rubble to
sides and rear, and slate roof. Double-depth plan with gable
chimney stacks, and a rear extension to the left.
3 storeys and 3 bays, 2 wide ones with a narrow one to the
right. A band between the ground and first floors and stone
gutter-brackets. The ground floor is composed of 2 arched
openings, now blocked and partly glazed, whose imposts form a
broken band and whose keystones rise to meet the band above
the ground floor. To the right is a narrow doorway, now with a
glazed door; the lower face of its lintel is hollowed to give
the appearance of a basket arch. All the windows have plain
reveals but recent joinery. Those above the arches have
concrete lintels. Masonry infill between the windows to the 2
upper windows in the left-hand bay suggests that there may
have been a loading slot here.
INTERIOR: ground floor originally open, with a staircase to
the first floor across the back wall.
HISTORY: marked on the 5 feet to one mile OS map, surveyed in
1845, as a police station, although built as a coach house on
the ground floor.
(Ordnance Survey: Map of Lancaster at Five Feet to One Mile:
Southampton: 1849-).
