Warehouse Block to east of
Leathermarket Yard, Units 13-16

GV II

Warehouse. Later C19. Stock and red brick in Flemish bond,
some double headers. Stone dressings. Roof obscured by brick
parapet.
Rectangular in plan, divided into 4 sections by internal fire
walls, each section 4 structural bays wide, giving the whole
west elevation a 16-window range including hoist bays. Stone
plat band forms plinth.
EXTERIOR: 4 storeys. One flat-arched entrance to left corner
set under pedimented aedicule; round-arched entrance at south
corner. Elevation organized around paired, segmental-arched
hoist bays, with original doors and platforms intact; hoist
cranes and window glazing of authentic design as well.
Flanking each pair of hoist bays is a small round-arched
window with keystone. Plain storey bands. Red brick insets to
pick out sill and springing bands. Arches of windows turned in
contrasting brick. End sections project slightly from the
centre pair.
Rear to east is plainer, simple Flemish bond with no stone
dressings. 12-window range in all, including hoist bays;
articulated into 4 groups of 3. Plinth and storey bands picked
out in brick.
INTERIOR: wood floor beams carried on cast-iron columns which
are Greek-cross shaped in section.
The stark, high mass of the block complements the rear
elevation of the original Leathermarket, Weston Street (qv)
and contributes to a most distinctive industrial landscape.
