CHESTER CITY (IM)

SJ4066SW BOLLAND'S COURT
595-1/3/30 Warehouse and attached wall,
north-west of Bolland's Court

GV II

Warehouse. Early-mid C19, with some probably late medieval
walling of the former City Common Hall. Sandstone, brown
brick; grey slate roof. Ridge running north-south.
EXTERIOR: 4 storeys, 5 windows. The west plinth, or adjoining
wall against the warehouse, is approx 1.25m high and projects
approx 0.40m, of coursed red sandstone, extending north in
poorer condition as the flush plinth of the yard wall. It
appears to be the only remaining part of the former Common
Hall.
The rest of the warehouse is in irregular bond brick. The west
side has 2 loading openings, one with framed and boarded
double doors, a framed and boarded pedestrian door and a
window; the second storey has 4 windows, the third and fourth
storey have 5 windows. The north and south ends have altered
openings, the latter with a C20 external steel stair. The west
side has blank first and second storeys and altered windows to
the third and fourth storeys. Original openings have segmental
arches of 2 header courses, except the fourth storey which has
timber lintels.
INTERIOR not inspected.
Probably the best example of a detached city-centre warehouse
in Chester, this item is of special interest for the remains
of the Common Hall.
