Offices and warehouse later converted to Mariners Hall, now
offices. Early C19, later minor alterations, converted to
offices c1985. For Samuel Bowley, merchant. Red brick with
stone details, slate roof. The offices double-depth block,
with segmental curve in the front to echo curve in the road
junction of Llanthony Road and Southgate Street, the hall an
end-gabled range adjoining to right in Llanthony Road. Small
lean-to extension to rear.
EXTERIOR: two storeys; symmetrical front of five bays
comprising a very wide, curved bay in the centre flanked on
each side by a slightly projecting bay, and a bay at each end;
offset brick plinth, in the central and projecting bays a
raised stone band at the impost level of the arched openings,
a crowning raised stone band, and a low, stone coped parapet:
on the ground floor in both of the projecting bays are
identical semicircular arched doorways with inner, recessed
jambs and arches, the outer arches set with a large, raised
key stones; recessed within each doorway a fanlight with
radiating bars, and a six-panel door.
In the central bay three semicircular arched sashes with
radiating glazing bars in the upper frames (3x4 panes), all in
openings with dressed stone apron panels, and rubbed brick
arches set with raised keystones, in each of the end bays a
sash with glazing bars (3x4 panes) both in openings with
rubbed brick flat arches and dressed stone apron panels; on
the first floor in the central bay a central sash and a narrow
sash to each side, all with glazing bars (3x4 panes in the
central sash), in each of the projecting bays and in the end
bays a sash with glazing bars (3x4 and 3x3 panes), all in
openings with rubbed brick flat-arched heads and projecting
stone sills.
The Mariners' Hall is a tall single-storey structure except
for two storeys in bay at right-hand end; the front of four
bays with a wide, offset brick plinth, from the top of the
plinth, and defining the bays, brick pilasters with brick
cappings at eaves band, in each of the three bays to left a

tall window with fixed light and short, side-hung sash at top
with glazing bars (3x6 panes); in bay to right on each floor
is a sash with glazing bars (4x4 panes); all the openings with
brick segmental-arched heads and projecting stone sills. In
the west gable-end wall a central doorway with vertical
boarded door and on the first floor a late C19 horned sash.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
An interesting example of its type, historically linked to the
nearby Docks development of the early C19.
