stacks. French Renaissance style, particularly in the
bracketed pediments over the cross-mullioned first-floor
windows and the pedimented ashlar dormers. Bracketed sill
string and cornice with swagged corbels to dividing piers on
first floor. The arcaded ground floor treatment survives on
the corner and on right hand return (the St Alban's PH).
Rounded corner with square oriel over with richly carved
transoms panels and shaped pediments to dormer over. The
adjacent shop to left has Corinthian columns at entrance, with
angled oriel over, dated panels in transoms and shaped gable
to dormer.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORICAL NOTE: The Promenade was laid out in 1818 as a
tree-lined avenue from the Colonnade in the High Street to the
Sherborne Spa (on the site of the Queen's Hotel (qv)).
Forms a group with Nos 2 and 4 (Midland Bank) Promenade (qv).
