Barclay's Bank


Bank with chambers above. c1900, altered c1980. Probably by
Austin and Paley. Ashlar, with ashlar dressings. Slate roofs.
Elizabethan Revival style. Rectangular plan on the corner with
New Street.
3 storeys plus an attic, with 3 wide bays to both Market
Street and New Street, and a canted bay on the corner. This
corner bay contains the entrance to the banking hall. It has a
round-headed doorway flanked by shallow Ionic pilasters. Above
it there is a 3-light mullioned and transomed window on each
floor, while the corners on the second floor have octagonal
turret-like projections which rise on either side of the
gabled dormer; this is pierced by a small circular window and
carries a square finial.
The Market Street facade has cornices between the storeys,
sill bands on the first and second floors and semi-octagonal
projections between the bays on the first and second floors,
which rise as turrets to flank the 2 gables on the left.
The New Street facade is similar, except that the first bay
projects slightly on the ground and first floors, and the
projections on the second floor are replaced by 2 corbelled
flat chimneys which rise to flank a single central gabled
dormer. To the right of the second bay on the ground floor is
a simple round-headed doorway, now blocked.
All the windows have mullions and transoms, mostly of 2
lights, except for those in the first 2 bays on the ground
floor of Market Street and the third bay on New Street, which
were enlarged c1980 into shop windows with segmental heads.
The original ground-floor windows and those in the attic have
scrolled aprons.
HISTORY: built as a branch of the Bank of Liverpool.
