Bank. Built for Lloyd's Bank Limited, 1907, to designs by George Hastwell Grayson (of Grayson and Ould). (Ref Lloyd's Bank, Estates Department archives). Sandstone ashlar, brick and some half-timberwork; graduated Cumbrian slate roof. Banking hall and chambers lie parallel to Telegraph Road with the principal entrance on the corner with The Mount, with manager's house to rear, forming an L-shaped plan overall. 2-storeys. Front (to Telegraph Road): irregular 3 window range under 3 gables connected by parapet, all with coping; 2 3-light and one 4-light windows to 1st floor, all with labels and mullions, the latter with a king mullion; to ground, 2, 3 and 4-light windows of similar detailing, the 3-light window larger (to light banking hall) and with decorative glazing bars. To the right, almost detached, canted, and pyramidally roofed with a dentil cornice is the entrance tower surmounted by a lead finial; one small window above the doorway, the latter in moulded surround with shaped pediment containing a beehive device. End wall of this main range (to right, facing The Mount), coping to gable as front, 3-light window to 1st floor, large 3-light window to ground (as to banking hall, front). Both these elevations in stone. Stone returns to left for one bay (2-light window to ground, timber-framed gabled attic window); the rest of this side in brick (with stone kneelers to gabled end wall of principal range). 2 and 3-light windows, those to ground with iron glazing bars. Corbelled ridge stacks. Rear: asymmetrical, varied elevations; shallow rear wing with massive stack all brick with set-offs, to banking hall. Pentice connects this with polygonal stair turret that occupies the inner angle of the L-shaped plan. 2 3-light windows above pentice (one is a gabled dormer). This floor and most of the main rear wing (the house), half-timbered with herring-bone nogging. Inner face of wing with canted and gabled oriel. Large external end stack partly concealed by sensitive brick lean-to addition. Interior not inspected. Grayson (a partner in the important Cheshire firm of Grayson and Ould) was a talented architect who did important work at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. This varied and well-managed, complex design is amongst his best.
