SY6778NE LOWER ST EDMUND STREET 873-1/23/214 (South side) 14/06/74 No.4 Granary Quay (Formerly Listed as: LOWER ST EDMUND STREET Warehouse adjacent to Oliver Brothers on west side)


Warehouse, now apartments. Early C19. Coursed and squared Portland stone, slate roof. A large warehouse, with frontages to North Quay and St Nicholas Street as well as Lower St Edmund Street. EXTERIOR: the Quay front is 4 storeys, with 3 windows and one doorway to each of the top 3 floors; all 2-light C20 casements to the original segmental voussoir heads and stone sills. The 3rd bay contains C20 glazed doors in the former loading bays, with a balcony and slight iron balustrade. At the ground floor has 2 doorways with segmental heads, and, to the right, a wide garage door. The full width haunched coped gable has a small oculus, and a string course below the kneelers. The return to St Nicholas Street has 3x3 two-light casements as the front, and at ground floor a square opening and 2 lights with flush voussoirs, and the Lower St Edmund Street front has 3 bays with deep-set casements to segmental heads, and small balconies. Ground floor has a square-headed opening with a pair of doors. The roof is hipped at this end, to a plain eaves. INTERIOR: not inspected. Originally a grain warehouse, an early C20 photograph in the NMR shows the building neglected, and hung with various advertisement hoardings. With No.2 (qv) adjoining, it was carefully restored in the late C20, and put into use as apartments, thus reviving a part of the harbour frontage at risk of decline. A Weymouth Civic Society plaque acknowledges the value of this piece of conservation work.
