Former warehouse behind No.5 Great
John Street


Warehouse. c1800, converted to flats 1994. Apparently built as
part of the rear extension of No.5 Great John Street (qv).
Coursed sandstone rubble with stone slate roof. Deep
rectangular plan. 4 storeys above cellars, with a central
loading slot under a projecting gable and flanked by windows
on the first and second floors. On the ground floor there is a
window to the left and, to the right, a doorway up a flight of
5 steps which leads to an internal staircase. On the top floor
there is a window on the left and a round arch to the loading
slot, which is wider to accommodate a crane which is now
missing. All the openings have plain surrounds, and the
joinery is of the later C20.
