grouped coped brick pilaster buttresses, with tall 5-light window to second

arches; blocked window beneath segmental stretcher arch to fourth bay. To
right, a pair of tall 5-light windows beneath header basket arches, a flush-
panelled door beneath a stretcher basket arch, a small 4-light window
beneath segmental stretcher arch and an inserted 4-pane sliding sash to far
right. Above, at second-floor level, a pair of 5-light segmental-arched
windows in C19 rebuilt wall to left, a small 3-light window, vertical
straight joint and a segmental-arched 6-light window to centre, and to far
right, a 4-pane first-floor sash beneath a segmental stretcher arch, and a
partly-blocked segmental-arched second-floor opening with an inserted 5-
light window. Stone-coped gable to right. Left gable end: 5-light window
to left in blocked segmental-arched door, with 4-light segmental-arched

lintel and original segmental stretcher arch, 4-pane casement to left.
Second floor: smaller similar segmental-arched window and 4-pane casement,
straight vertical joint to right. East gable end has attic 4-pane window
beneath segmental arch. Most windows have narrow lights with lapped glass,
the taller ones also with single transoms. Interior: heavy chamfered oak
beams carrying board floors, sections of floors at west end removed;
internal brick partition wall with high round-arched opening. Collared
rafter roof with pegged staggered butt purlins. In the mid C19 the building
contained an oil seed cake mill operated by a steam engine at the west end
of the building. An early illustration shows a tall stack alongside. The
sole survivor of a group of warehouses along this section of the river.
