National Westminster Bank
MATERIALS: Ham Hill stone ashlar with hipped slate roof and
rendered stacks to sides.
PLAN: double-depth plan.
EXTERIOR: Late Georgian style. 3 storeys; symmetrical 3-window
range, though a side entrance occupies the place of the
far-left ground-floor window. Platbands between floors;
rusticated quoins; banded rustication to the ground-floor,
with voussoirs to 6/6-pane round-arched windows reaching the
platband which bears the bank name. Steps up to the central
door, the round arch of which echoes the window arches. Above
this is a 6/6-pane sash set in a classical architrave with
Ionic pilasters resting on a cill with consoles, and
supporting a cornice and pediment: above this is a 3/6-pane
sash. To outer bays, on the first-floor, are 6/6-pane
tripartite sashes, with similar 3/6-pane ones above. A
substantial cornice, below a parapet, supports a balustrade
over the central bay, with a heraldic device bearing a lion
rampant. Both doors have iron gates.
INTERIOR not inspected.
HISTORY: notable as one of the first purpose-built banks in
the country; built for the Stuckey Banking Company, and a fine
example of its type.
