and L A Parsons and Co Ltd

(College Mill)
SE 1633 SE 37/248


Former chapel of Airedale College, architect J P Pritchett 1839. Corner site with
Upper Park Gate. The body has been rebuilt this century for commercial use. However
the front to Upper Park Gate remains virtually intact. This elevation, set on a
shallow convex curve and originally symmetrical with one main door flanking bays,
the left hand one demolished, is built of fine quality ashlar and has Greek Revival
details. Two-storeys and blind attic, raised on tall basement storey with shallow
horizontal channelling. The main, curved, part of the front consists of 3 broad
window bays articulated through the 2 main floors by Giant Doric pilasters rising
from deep plat band over basement. Deep frieze and projecting cornice; the blind
attic has 3 panels and cornice surmounted in centre by a solid plain pediment with
antefixae. The former windows of the centre bay have been altered to warehouse
hatches. The flanking main floor windows have architrave surrounds with cornices.
Plain square window openings to upper floor with marginal glazing. The surviving
flat fronted one window bay to right hand, also has giant pilasters and the main
entablature is carried over but without the blind attic; the cornice is surmounted
by a similar pediment. Same window type. Pilastered, corniced doorway in basement.
Prominent hillside site.
