and attached ironwork
Warehouses, now offices. c1870. Stock brick with stone
dressings and stone cornice; mansard roof of slate.
4 storeys with 9 roof dormers. 13-window range, the first 10
of which, going from west to east, are symmetrically arranged.
Main entrance is centrally placed, in the 4th and 5th ranges,
both of which project from the facade; there are secondary
doors in the 1st and 10th bays. There is a further 3-window
range to the east.
Most of the openings to the upper floors remain unchanged:
plate-glass sashes separated by iron colonnettes. On the 3rd
floor the colonnettes support the main cornice while, at 1st-
and 2nd-floor levels, they carry brick segmental arches. But
the openings of the 1st and 10th bays, which may originally
have been hoist bays, have all been altered, as have the doors
and windows at ground floor. Despite this the framework of
piers, colonnettes and attached columns which articulate the
openings of this floor are intact.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
It is the elaborate stone detail, including the hoods to the
piers (those at 1st-floor level still retain their iron

distinctive quality. Noted in the "South London" volume of the
Buildings of England series for having a handsome "Venetian
