Description

QUAY WALLS
No 3
1.
840
NT 9952 11/265
GV
II
2.
Granary now store and partly disused. Early C18 and later; of uncoursed rubble
sandstone, rendered and painted on the front elevation, under a steeply-pitched
pantiled roof. The eaves courses are of slate. Three storeys towards Quay Walls and
four to the rear where there is a rearward wing enclosing a courtyard. The front
range is eight windows in breadth and has two wide entrances from Quay Walls and an
external stairway rising to a central doorway at first floor level. From the lower
level of the quay a passageway through the walls gives on to the lower ground floor
and to the rear courtyard. The interior has open galleries at each level, each with
a central row of timber posts. Quay Walls at this point forms part of the Elizabethan
walled defences enclosing the town and No 3 is built into them. It is probably the
earliest surviving granary in the town.
