Statement of Interest

This prominently sited corner building contributes significantly to the streetscape. The ground floor Public House (The Market Arms) is a rare example of a circa 1900 pub frontage. It has particularly good etched and coloured glass. Early 20th century Public Houses with timber stallrisers and columns and accompanied by fine etched glass are becoming increasingly rare. Established as a Public House in 1843 and appearing on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey Map of 1866-8 as such, the building continues in this use today (2006).

Hadden Street and the surrounding area was redeveloped in the mid-late nineteenth century as a mixed use area with housing, commercial buildings and industrial units.

Category changed from B to C(S), 2007.
