SE2933SE CANAL WHARF 714-1/77/80 (West side) 05/08/76 No.18 Former Canal Company office, lock-keeper's house and attached wall and railings (Formerly Listed as: CANAL WHARF No.18 Canal Office)

GV II

Canal company office with forecourt steps, wall and railings, and lock-keeper's house to rear. 1816 for the Leeds and Liverpool Canal Company, the house added after 1847. Office: ashlar, low-pitched hipped slate roof with central corniced ridge stack extended in brick. One storey over basement, central wide panelled door in plain surround with deep cornice hood and carved lettering: 'CANAL OFFICE'. Flanking segmental-arched recesses with tripartite sashes with glazing bars and margin-lights. Corner pilasters, deep eaves cornice, blocking course. Right return: straight flight of steps to Basin Lock (qv). House to rear: red brick, hipped slate roof, central stack, 4-pane sashes. INTERIOR: not seen but reputed to contain original panelled board room to left. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: 3 steps project forward of line of railings; wall: 2 courses of rusticated masonry, stepped copings with railings flanking entrance; acorn finials to rails and standards; pedestrian gate far left with dog bars. HISTORICAL NOTE: probably built after the completion of the canal in 1816; not shown on the 1815 map and although the canal from Leeds to Gargrave was completed 1770-77 there was a long delay in the completion through to Liverpool due to a lack of funds.
