Fish processing and smoking factory. Early C20 with later alterations. Yellow and red brick, rendered and colourwashed to front and right return. Concrete tile roof to front, sheet asbestos roof to rear and to smoking tower. Rectangular on plan, with central smoking tower. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic. 5 first-floor openings to street front. Entrance to right gable-end. Street front has 4 segmental-headed windows with glazing bars, 3 small segmental-headed casements to right. 4 first-floor windows similar to those on ground-floor but shorter, 3 with 4 panes, one with 9 panes. Stepped eaves. Roof stack to right. Narrow elongated central smoking tower rising from apex of roof, with 6 wooden louvred openings, brick gable ends. Right return of main range has ground-floor sliding door to left of centre. To left a blocked door with a first-floor loading door above with a board door beneath a segmental arch and a timber hoist arm. To right, a segmental-arched window. To far right a vertical series of loading doors, the ground-floor one blocked with an inserted 3-light window beneath a timber lintel, the first-floor with a board door beneath a segmental arch, and the second-floor with a narrower board door with a stone sill. 3 first-floor windows, one with 4 panes, the others with 9 panes, all beneath segmental arches. Small first-floor hatch to far right. Rear has flat-roofed ground-floor addition with sliding board door and 5 windows; 6 first-floor segmental-arched windows to main range similar to front. INTERIOR: not inspected. Included as the best and least altered example of a series of fish processing and smoking factories built in Riby Street, near Grimsby Fish Docks, in the late C19-early C20, when Grimsby was one of the foremost fishing centres in the world. Still in use. Forms an interesting comparison with the listed smoking-houses within the docks in the square bounded by Surtees Street, Brown Street and Sidebottom Street (qv).
