Above 1st-floor cornice, parapet (with decorative line over end pairs of bays) containing square-headed attic windows with subsidiary cornice over all but those in end pairs of bays.

REASONS FOR DESIGNATION: The former printing works at 15,16 and 17 Hatfields is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Historic interest: an early example of reinforced concrete construction;
* Architectural interest: a vast frontage, articulated by a giant order of classical pilasters in good quality brickwork.
