GV II

Warehouse, now offices. 1860s, restored and interior rebuilt
late C20. By W Snooke and H Stock. Yellow brick with stucco
and artificial stone dressings, C20 roof extensions above
cornice.
EXTERIOR: 4 storeys (ground floor including recent mezzanine
level) and attic, 3 bays. Altered ground floor has tall,
segmental-headed openings with keystones now filled in at top
to form mezzanine level, open below as walkway. Stucco banded
rustication to this level. Slightly recessed rounded corner
angles. Upper 3 floors articulated by colossal round-arched
recesses with architraves and keystones supporting cornice and
resting on blocking course above cornice to ground floor;
moulded string at spring. 1st- and 2nd-floor segmental-headed
windows in inner, segmental-arched recess. 3rd floor
round-headed windows in round-arched recesses have moulded
sills inside recesses continuing as plain band outside.
Similarly treated 5-bay returns.
HISTORICAL NOTE: the last remaining warehouse building of
former Cotton's Wharf. Cotton's was almost entirely destroyed
in the fire of Tooley Street (1861) and was immediately
rebuilt. It was converted into a coldstore in the 1880s by the
proprietors of adjacent Hay's Wharf. Late C20 buildings have
replaced the other buildings on the site.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
Has group value with the adjacent Hay's Wharf buildings to the
east.
