GV II

Includes: No.8 BRITANNIA STREET. Houses, later woollen warehouses, now offices, with basement railings. Early C19, altered C20. Red brick, Flemish bond, stone details, wrought-iron basement railings, slate roof. 3 storeys over basement, two 3-bay houses and a narrow 2-bay house linked through to 3-bay right return (No.8 Britannia Street). No.11, left: steps up to panelled door with overlight in stone architrave with deep scrolled brackets, entablature and cornice. Sashes with glazing bars, 9-pane to top floor, stone sills, segmental brick arches; 1st-floor sill band. No.12 a mirrored pair, massive 14-flue ridge stack with clay pots on ridge between the 2 houses. No.13: facade set back slightly, a plain segmental-arched doorway with overlight left, sash window right; inserted 4-pane sash to 1st-floor left. Right return: central doorway as Nos 11 & 12, restored sash windows; 4-pane window to 1st floor left of each bay, hipped roof with rebuilt stack. Plain railings with pointed finials. INTERIOR: not inspected. HISTORICAL NOTE: map evidence suggests that Nos 11 & 12 are probably part of the row built c1831-34, with No.13/No.8 Britannia Street added when Britannia Street was built, by 1850. The 1870 Directory indicates that these houses were then occupied by a woad grower, a gentleman and an oyster merchant; by 1886 they were all woollen warehouses. (Maps of Leeds, 1831, 1834, 1850, 1886; Directory of Leeds 1870).
