Grant's Department Store)


Former department store. 1894 by Metcalfe and Jones for Grant Brothers. Four main storeys
with attics above. Red brick with grey brick diapering and extensive stone dressings.
Symmetrical seven-bay facade. Ground floor with modern shop front, fascia obscured. From it
ascend semi-octagonal attached columns at ends and either side of central bay; similar columns
define other bays but project from corbels. First floor has three pairs of windows with
four-centred arches under flat stone entablatures which flank two narrow central windows with
a decorative panel forming the initials 'GB'. In the band above, decorative lettering reads:
LONDON HOUSE - MANTLES/LINENS'. The bays above these windows are arranged
1-2-1 either side of projecting canted oriel, all with stone dressings. Cornice above third floor
decorated with leaves and panels. The central oriel has a turret with ogee cap and octagonal
pillars projecting above the parapet and supporting heraldic beasts. A further tower rises one
storey higher behind, with an open decorated parapet.
