LEEDS

SE2236 TOWN STREET, Rodley
714-1/16/1047 (North side)
05/08/76 Nos.166 AND 168

GV II

Possibly offices and warehouse, now shops. Early C18;
extensive C20 alterations. Rendered brick and stone over
coursed rubble foundations, stone slate roof.
A tall 2-storey, 2-bay building over a basement, the N wall on
the edge of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. Stone quoins.
Inserted shop entrance with overlight centre, moulded jambs
and lintel to doorway far right and to window, possibly former
doorway, far left. Large opening left of centre, now window;
C20 window right. Projecting band at former window-sill level
to raised ground and to 1st floor; 2 square windows with C20
small-pane frames to 1st floor. Gutter brackets. Large central
stack built of hand-made bricks straddles ridge. Rear: ground
floor obscured by trees; a small 4-pane sash, a 3-light
mullioned window, and a large doorway with C20 glazing to
upper storey.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
Although altered this remains an unusual form of building; the
canal-side site and proportions, with possible loading door to
canal and high ground floor for loading waggons on the
roadside, suggest that it was an early Canal Company building.
