MAYORS AVENUE (North side)
1-6 The Sail Loft, No 12

(Formerly listed as Warehouse adjoining west end of No.13 (No.13 not included))


Warehouse. Late C18/early C19. Mostly local stone rubble, but
includes sections of weather-boarded timber-framing; slate
PLAN: Long rectangular building end onto the street.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys. The front bay of the long side wall is
blind. Behind are 6 bays (a further 2 at the rear now behind a
later C19 house there) defined by full-height stone piers.
Some of the bays are filled with stone rubble up to
first-floor level but most have full-width garage/workshop
doors. All bays are weather-boarded at first- and second-floor
levels. A couple of the first-floor windows are old, with
vertical glazing bars and overlapping panes, but most are late
C20 replacements. Second bay back has full-width loading bay
at first-floor level and small boarded hatch at second-floor
level with remains of hoist. Third bay back has flight of
stone steps to first-floor plank door. Front gable-end wall
has ground-floor doorway under a brick low segmental arch and
now contains a C20 glazed door, first-floor loading hatch
door, and weather-boarded second floor with wide loading bay
under a hoist. Rear gable-end wall has a doorway and a window
above in the blocking of an original loading hatch.
INTERIOR: Plain sturdy carpentry exposed in places, but most
is hidden. Roof is boarded over and inaccessible.
HISTORY: The warehouses on Mayors Avenue and No.26 Foss Street
(qv) were built as waterfront buildings and are of historic
interest because of their associations with the maritime
history of the port. The street which they face was built in
1876-7 on reclaimed land.
