SJ4066SW BOLLAND'S COURT 595-1/3/30 Warehouse and attached wall, north-west of Bolland's Court


Warehouse. Early-mid C19, with some probably late medieval walling of the former City Common Hall. Sandstone, brown brick; grey slate roof. Ridge running north-south. EXTERIOR: 4 storeys, 5 windows. The west plinth, or adjoining wall against the warehouse, is approx 1.25m high and projects approx 0.40m, of coursed red sandstone, extending north in poorer condition as the flush plinth of the yard wall. It appears to be the only remaining part of the former Common Hall. The rest of the warehouse is in irregular bond brick. The west side has 2 loading openings, one with framed and boarded double doors, a framed and boarded pedestrian door and a window; the second storey has 4 windows, the third and fourth storey have 5 windows. The north and south ends have altered openings, the latter with a C20 external steel stair. The west side has blank first and second storeys and altered windows to the third and fourth storeys. Original openings have segmental arches of 2 header courses, except the fourth storey which has timber lintels. INTERIOR not inspected. Probably the best example of a detached city-centre warehouse in Chester, this item is of special interest for the remains of the Common Hall.
