Warehouse. C18 front to C16 core. Brick; hipped Welsh slate
roof to south pitch; pantiles to north; corrugated-iron and
pantiles to west range. The surviving half of a U-shaped
complex facing the Wye River, and recorded in Taylor's plan of
Hereford, 1757. C16 part consists of a large square-panelled
frame, with queen-strut and king-post trusses. C18 part is the
external wall of English bond brickwork on sandstone plinth;
modillion eaves cornice; band; openings under segmental
arches; oval window in north gable. INTERIOR: initials FJ & WJ
carved in serifed C18 figures on beam (sometimes interpreted
as Francis James, bricklayer, fl.1732, and William Jones,
carpenter, fl.1754). Mutilated C17 roof; wattle-and-daub
infill; chamfered ceiling joists; C17 box framing. Probably a
dyer's "blewhouse" until 1695 Wye Navigation Act; then coal
warehouse; used by Pomona Cider company in late C19. In
ruinous and dangerous condition.
