Four storeys with attic; 7-window range 1:1:1:2:1:1:1.
Symmetrical rugged brick facade divided into attractively
brick-detailed full-height piers and tiers of segmental
casement sashes with panels below; 3rd floor brick-pedimented
sashes with decorative terracotta tympana. Right end has later
extensions in the same style and materials but altered C20.
INTERIOR: timber floors and joists and a series of simple iron
pillars. Reconstructed staircase is off-centre. History:
William Notting (1831-1911) was a prominent member of the
London printing trade and had acquired the business of Henry
Watts. Notting was established for a long time in Type Street,
Finsbury and in 1872 his firm moved to premises off Ray
Street. In 1877 he purchased this land freehold and built this
warehouse/factory described as 'a five-storey warehouse with
stabling, a cart house and meeting house'.
