GV II*

Formerly known as: Hanseatic Warehouse. Warehouse, possibly for the Hanseatic League. Early C14 ashlar ground floor with C15 and C16 brick upper floor. Original structure probably single-storeyed. Constructed on an island site in the Ouse estuary probably reached by a causeway, but now 19 metres from the quayside. C20 plain tiled roof. Barn-like plan. Entrance from the west side through a full-height renewed timber door. Ground floor originally with four 2-light mullioned windows under segmental heads, arranged symmetrically. 2 inner windows converted to doorways. First floor also with four 2-light stone windows with chamfered mullions under straight heads; the outer 2 have been blocked. These of C16 type. Gabled roof with one sloping dormer off-set to right. North return with 3 ground-floor depressed arched openings with ashlar jambs, blocked with brick and the central one opened into a window: formerly a central door and 2 windows. Immediately above is one 3-light stone mullioned window, and lighting the roof space 2 shuttered windows. Gable-head rebuilt. South return with 3 tiers of 2 shuttered windows under segmental brick arches and one more to apex of gable-head. These probably late C18. Rear, east, elevation with a full-height C20 timber double door opposing that to the west side. 2 pedestrian doorways either side to ground-floor, whose origins are vague. Directly above the left door are 2 brick arches of former openings and to the first floor is a blocked 4-light stone window with chamfered mullions, C15 or C16. The pedestrian door to the right of centre is below a depressed brick arch. To its right one whole light and 2 half-lights remain of a blocked brick-mullioned window. Various other scars of former openings. INTERIOR. Very large square section bridging beams to ground floor with plain joists. Bridging beams supported at regular intervals by chamfered square section posts. Similar first floor, the main beams now tie beams, formerly with arched braces dropping to wall posts: only the ties at extreme north and south sides retain these. Tie beams now support joists for attic floor, the boarding denying inspection of the ties for crown-post mortices suggested by Parker. Thin C20 King-post roof and principals. North gable wall rebuilt. Two flights of late C20 staircases.
