GV II

Possibly offices and warehouse, now shops. Early C18; extensive C20 alterations. Rendered brick and stone over coursed rubble foundations, stone slate roof. A tall 2-storey, 2-bay building over a basement, the N wall on the edge of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. Stone quoins. Inserted shop entrance with overlight centre, moulded jambs and lintel to doorway far right and to window, possibly former doorway, far left. Large opening left of centre, now window; C20 window right. Projecting band at former window-sill level to raised ground and to 1st floor; 2 square windows with C20 small-pane frames to 1st floor. Gutter brackets. Large central stack built of hand-made bricks straddles ridge. Rear: ground floor obscured by trees; a small 4-pane sash, a 3-light mullioned window, and a large doorway with C20 glazing to upper storey. INTERIOR: not inspected. Although altered this remains an unusual form of building; the canal-side site and proportions, with possible loading door to canal and high ground floor for loading waggons on the roadside, suggest that it was an early Canal Company building.
