906-1/15/41 (West side)
Nos.1 AND 3


Pair of warehouses. Early to mid C19; altered and renovated
1994. Coursed squared sandstone (roofs not visible). Built as
a gabled pair flanking the entrance to a courtyard known as
Paradise Street (and linked by a C20 bridge or "gang" at 3rd
EXTERIOR: each is 4-storeys (plus a basement to No.1), with a
narrow 3-window gabled facade, a continuous full-height
loading slot in the centre with wooden doors to all floors,
timber lintel and a blocked square aperture above for the
former hoist jib; and a coped gable. Otherwise, the openings
differ slightly.
No.1 has a doorway to the right at ground floor, with a plain
surround and altered door, a blocked basement window to the
left, tall windows to the 1st and 2nd floors and shorter
windows to the 3rd floor. No.3 has a doorway to the left (like
that at ground floor of No.1) now covered by a sliding door,
and an inserted doorway to the right; and, on the upper
floors, small windows to the left and 4-pane sashed windows to
the right. All these windows now have replacement 4-pane
sashed glazing with exposed boxes. The 4-window inner return
walls have blocked windows to the basement of No.1 and the
ground floor of No.3, sashed windows to the upper floors like
those at the front, and a C20 bridge at 3rd floor. The rear
gable walls of both now have replacement three 4-pane sashed
windows on each floor above ground floor.
INTERIOR not accessible at time of inspection (but internal
renovation appears to be either in progress or recently
completed); heavy timber beams visible through windows of the
north block.
HISTORY: an unusual and reasonably intact survival of a type
of commercial/industrial building typical of textile
maufacturing towns in the early C19, and perhaps built by a
putting-out manufacturer.
