Warehouse, quay on west side
fronting River Irwell

GV II

Warehouses. Early to mid C19, altered. Red brick with
sandstone dressings and slate roof; quay of very large dressed
stone blocks. Victoria Warehouse L-plan with one range at
right-angles to street and the other parallel to the quay, and
Albert Warehouse continued from north end of this. Five
storeys. The west front, to the river, forms a continuous
range of 9+7 windows, plus 4 loading slots. Victoria
warehouse, the southern half, has 5-stage loading slots at the
south end and near the centre (dividing the windows 4 and 5),
both with timber sills, board doors and pitched wooden
canopies; Albert Warehouse has round-headed 5-stage loading
slots at the junction and near the centre (dividing the
windows 3 and 4), and between these a large basket-arched
doorway rising through 2 storeys, with rusticated quoined
surround (and now furnished with sliding doors and protected
by remains of wooden pentice). Both have low 6-pane tilting
casement windows (mostly damaged), with raised stone sills and
flat-arched heads. Victoria Warehouse has a hipped roof,
Albert Warehouse has a stone frieze, cornice and blocking
course, and raised coped gables. The return side and rear (to
Water Street) are generally similar, but Victoria Warehouse
has 2 blocked basket-arched doorways with quoined surrounds.
Interior: iron columns with wide timber pads to timber beams.
