SE2933SE GLOBE ROAD, Holbeck 714-1/77/838 (North side (off)) 05/08/76 Tower Works, boiler house chimney (Formerly Listed as: GLOBE ROAD Verona Tower)

GV II*

Also known as: Verona Tower. Boiler house chimney. 1864, restored 1989. By Thomas Shaw for TW Harding's Tower Works. Polychrome brick. Square plan, bracketed cornice, 3-light arched 'belfry' stage, deep bracketed cornice, octagonal top stage, round-arched arcaded panels with bracketed sills. INTERIOR: not inspected. The design was based on the (much taller) Lamberti Tower in Verona, hence the alternative name, Verona Tower. The Italianate style was popular for industrial buildings throughout the mid C19, this fine example typifies the high quality of workmanship and materials used at the Tower Works. For historical information on the works see Tower Works, Entrance range (qv).
