Range of warehouses attached to gable-end of eastern warehouse
as river receded west. Late C15. Long rectangular
single-storeyed range. Brick with roof of machine tiles. South
flank rebuilt C17 and C18, altered C20. Pierced at intervals
by C20 windows and doors. Gabled roof. North flank undisturbed
late C15 English bond brick which continues into west gable,
but with much repair. C20 window in gable-head. Brick wall
continues south along present river line and contains a
blocked entrance with a chamfered brick arch. This is the
former watergate which would have opened directly into a
warehouse, suggesting that the restaurant warehouse was much
wider until narrowed in the C17. INTERIOR. Roof of re-used
cambered tie beams. 2 tiers staggered butt purlins,
taper-tenoned. Renewed collars, i.e. mid C18.
