VICTORIA AVENUE (south side),
(Formerly listed as Former Bakery, VICTORIA AVENUE, previously listed as Bakery)
Former barracks, later rebuilt as a bakery and renovated in 1995 as a public house. Originally built 1806 as barracks by James Wyatt for Shrewsbury Armoury, on a site adjacent to London Road, and moved to this location and rebuilt as bakery 1922. Brick on stone plinth with Welsh slate roof.
Two storeys, ten bays articulated by full-height pilasters, the outer bays advanced. Lower windows have round-arched fine gauged brick heads, flat-arched brick heads above. Lower windows of outer bays have flat-arched heads stepped to suggest voussoirs. Stone sills of upper windows from string course interrupted by pilasters. Overhanging eaves, the plain cornice continuing across gables as a pediment.
Narrow two window infill range links with two storey house or office block to right: two twelve-pane sash windows on each floor, the lower windows now blocked with flat-arched gauged brick heads. Stone plinth and continuous stone sill band to first floor windows. Plain overhanging eaves to hipped roof with end wall stack.
