2. 1903. W J Morley and Son, architects. A large sandstone ashlar 4 storey block built for the Methodists. The elevations designed in a mixture of Jacobean and Renaissance details popular in Bradford for public buildings at the turn of the century. Panelled pilasters articulate the front on each floor between moulded sill courses. Elaborate segmental and triangular pediments over centre lights of tripartite dormers, baluster shafts dividing the lights. Tripartite mullioned windows to main floors. Shop fronts on ground floor. The central entrance bay has a large segmental portal (elaborate partly leaded glazing to upper part) rising into first floor with oriel bay window above. Corbelled pinnacled buttresses flank this upper level and rising above the parapet, decorated with urns, is a graceful octagonal drum with archivolt lights and Ionic columns supporting a copper dome with crowning lantern. The dome makes an important contribution to the skyline of the Vicar Lane area. Long range extending back along Chapel Street with mullioned windows and gables.
