Description


SOUTHWARK

TQ3276 CAMBERWELL CHURCH STREET
636-1/11/123 (South side)
No.2

II

Bank, now offices. Late C19. Red brick with stone dressings,
rusticated ground floor, and mansard roof of red tile.
EXTERIOR: corner blocks with 2-window range to Camberwell
Church Street, and 5-window range to return. 4-storey
octagonal corner turret marking the main entrance of the
building, otherwise 3 storeys with dormers. Subsidiary
entrance in a single-storey block at the far end of the
return. Strongly modelled brick stacks (one to main elevation
and 3 to return), and a 2nd turret, with a conical tiled cap,
at the south end of the return elevation.
The 2nd-floor windows have stone architraves and are set
beneath a bracketed cornice. First-floor windows surmounted by
lavishly carved segmental pediments. The glazing to both
floors (plate-glass sashes) is authentic. The arched windows
of the ground floor are separated by pairs of Peterhead
granite columns, which support a deep projecting cornice.
Authentic and elaborately detailed double doors to main
entrance are sheltered by a carved hooded doorcase with
central cartouche.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
The stone cladding of the prominent, onion-domed corner turret
contrasts with the red brick and tile of the upper storeys.
This building makes the most of its prominent position facing
Camberwell Green.
