Bank. Dated 1904. Limestone ashlar with Flemish-bond brick
infill, polished granite-faced plinth, red sandstone blocks to
the doorcase and hipped pantile roof. Rectangular plan.
Edwardian Baroque style.
2 storeys. 2 facades of 4 bays to the right and 3 to the left
flank a concave entrance bay on the corner. A balustrade over
a dentilled cornice and entablature span both facades and is
returned to both sides, it is supported by full-height Ionic
columns in antis on pedestals which articulate the bays on the
west and south facades; the pilasters flanking them are banded
and the banding continues round the first floor of the
entrance bay. This has a 6/6-pane sash window in a keyed
moulded and shouldered architrave behind a convex stone
balustraded balcony above a segmental open pediment to the
Tuscan-style doorcase with blocking to the lower part of the
columns and a wide C20 twelve-panel door.
The first floor of each bay has 3 bands of alternate stone and
brick, a 6/6-pane sash window in a keyed moulded shouldered
architrave resting on a cill string-course between the
columns. Below the moulded cill-course carved stone festoons
of fruit on brick walls rest on the large keystones of the
ground-floor windows. These have segmental arches with
shouldered moulding over large 2-light fixed windows and
decorative cast-iron railings on the cill (plinth) which has
C20 ornamental railings. INTERIOR not inspected.
