Bank. 1892 by Arnold Thorne. Squared, brownish stone rubble
with granite ashlar plinth and dressings of limestone
(possibly Beer stone), the latter occupying most of the ground
storey. Slate roof. No chimneys visible from street. Classical
style with Tudor elements.
2 storeys with garret; 3-window front to High Street with
6-window return to Allhalland Street. Main ground-storey front
and part of return front divided into bays by half-fluted

The other bays contain small-paned metal windows of design
reminiscent of Venetian windows. Second-storey windows plain

Gable to High Street contains a pair of windows surmounted by

Venetian window. At the left-hand end of the High Street

In centre of Allhalland Street front the ground storey has 2

metal bars. Upper-storey windows are of 2 lights with stone
mullion; left-hand window of each storey has small-paned metal
casements, the other plain wooden sashes. Rainwater pipe with

At left-hand end of this front is a gabled, 1-window staircase
projection, wholly of limestone on a granite plinth. Ground
storey has round-arched opening with hollow jambs; recessed
doorway set in a shaped granite frame and with panelled door.
Upper-storey windows have moulded sills, architraves and
cornices, that in second storey also with keystone and

has C20 glazed partitions, but original cornices and square
columns with enriched capitals survive.
