01/12/51 Marriott's Warehouse
Formerly known as: Hanseatic Warehouse.
Warehouse, possibly for the Hanseatic League. Early C14 ashlar
ground floor with C15 and C16 brick upper floor. Original
structure probably single-storeyed. Constructed on an island
site in the Ouse estuary probably reached by a causeway, but
now 19 metres from the quayside. C20 plain tiled roof.
Barn-like plan. Entrance from the west side through a
full-height renewed timber door. Ground floor originally with
four 2-light mullioned windows under segmental heads, arranged
symmetrically. 2 inner windows converted to doorways. First
floor also with four 2-light stone windows with chamfered
mullions under straight heads; the outer 2 have been blocked.
These of C16 type. Gabled roof with one sloping dormer off-set
North return with 3 ground-floor depressed arched openings
with ashlar jambs, blocked with brick and the central one
opened into a window: formerly a central door and 2 windows.
Immediately above is one 3-light stone mullioned window, and
lighting the roof space 2 shuttered windows. Gable-head
South return with 3 tiers of 2 shuttered windows under
segmental brick arches and one more to apex of gable-head.
These probably late C18. Rear, east, elevation with a
full-height C20 timber double door opposing that to the west
side. 2 pedestrian doorways either side to ground-floor, whose
origins are vague. Directly above the left door are 2 brick
arches of former openings and to the first floor is a blocked
4-light stone window with chamfered mullions, C15 or C16. The
pedestrian door to the right of centre is below a depressed
brick arch. To its right one whole light and 2 half-lights
remain of a blocked brick-mullioned window. Various other
scars of former openings. INTERIOR. Very large square section
bridging beams to ground floor with plain joists. Bridging
beams supported at regular intervals by chamfered square
section posts. Similar first floor, the main beams now tie
beams, formerly with arched braces dropping to wall posts:
only the ties at extreme north and south sides retain these.
Tie beams now support joists for attic floor, the boarding
denying inspection of the ties for crown-post mortices
suggested by Parker. Thin C20 King-post roof and principals.
North gable wall rebuilt. Two flights of late C20 staircases.
