Shopping arcade with street-front commercial premises at either end. 1888-9 incorporating late C18 and c1880 premises at east (Briggate) end, altered C20. By Edward Clark of London. Brick, painted on street fronts, in English garden wall bond (3:1) to returns; Welsh slate and glass roofs. 2-storeyed, balconied shopping arcade with taller steet front premises. Main street frontage, to Land's Lane, has 3 storeys with attic, 11 bays symmetrically arranged 2:2:3:2:2; C20 ground-floor shop windows flanking entrance way all under C20 fascia boards; on first and 2nd floors, bays defined by pilasters, with ornate capitals on first floor, the windows C20, on first floor in bracketed, corniced architraves; modillion eaves cornice, mansard roof with round-cornered attic windows in architraves, the bays defined by projecting party walls. On Briggate the arcade is fronted by 2 earlier properties: on the right an C18 house, now commercial premises of 4 storeys, 5 bays, the ground and first floors replaced by C20 shop fronts and windows, the upper floors having brick flat-arched, stone-silled windows with sashes on 2nd floor and shorter 6-pane sashes above; stack to front roof pitches at left end and centre (replaced by vent), and to rear roof pitch on right. On left, late C19 property of 3 storeys, 3 bays, has C20 shop windows to ground and first floors and on 2nd floor wide elliptical-arched, voussoired windows on sill band separated by pilasters carrying cornice above which is corniced parapet with raised decorative motifs and central shaped finialed gable; left end stack. Entrance-way to arcade is in centre, breaking into both properties, with C20 fascia board over, and above it, at upper level, is clock on decorative iron bracket with painted lettering, 'Queen's Arcade'.

Shallow-pitched glass roof. INTERIOR: not inspected. The architect's original drawings are held at the Leeds City Archives, Sheepscar.
