SJ 3490 SE LIVERPOOL COLLEGE LANE 392- /53/10029 Nos. 20 AND 22 Pair of Warehouses


A pair of former warehouses, now offices, workshops and stores. Early to mid C19, with late C19 and C20 alterations. Red brick, rendered on side elevations, and originally roofed in Welsh slate, laid to diminishing courses, now replaced on No. 22 by profiled sheeting. Narrow plan form, with tall gables facing the street. FRONT: 3 storeys and attics above a semi basement. Each gable with a tier of double doorways to the centre, the cill beam of each opening forming the lintel of the opening below. Above the uppermost doorway, in the gable apex, a projecting hoist beam. Flanking the second and third floor doorways, on the outer corners are small, unglazed oval openings with iron grilles; on the inner bays are 2-light windows, beneath shallow segmental arches. No. 20 has plain, vertically-planked doors set between plain timber jambs, to 3 upper floors, and a widened or inserted double doorway to the ground floor, beneath a metal beam. Door opening with metal railed door below oval lights may denote stair position. No.22 has a remodelled ground floor, with C19 shop front detailing below second floor doorway, including fascia with console brackets and cornice. Below this to the left, a 2-panel door, with tall 12 pane light above. To the centre, a tall 3 light glazed opening infills the former double doorway above street level. To the right, a modified 2-light window, now with C20 joinery. Low double doorway below central glazed opening. To the right, entrance to passage which passes under No. 22 gives access to narrow rear courtyard with single storeyed workshop range to north side. Interiors not inspected. These warehouses represent early small-scale examples of the distinctive narrow-bodied warehouses built in the vicinity of the inland dock developed by Thomas Steers between 1709 and 1721, (now Canning Place), and to the rear of the massive riverside dock developments between 1824 and 1860. They are the industrial vernacular of this part of Liverpool, and contrast in scale and form with the architecture of the grander riverside docks.
