GV II

Offices to large cotton mill complex, with attached winding range; now in multiple occupation. Dated 1904 over doorway and 1912 in gablet of parapet; altered. Facades of glazed red brick with matching terracotta dressings, hipped slate roof; rear and north side of red brick. Irregular plan on corner site, facing east to Swan Meadow Road, with convex corner to Pottery Lane at north end and slightly concave return wall to that road. Edwardian Baroque style. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, a 13-window range, with entrance in 7th bay, offices to left and winding range to right; a terracotta string course over ground floor to left, a similar sillband to both portions, and a terracotta tiled parapet to the whole including one balustraded portion and 3 upstands, the parapet of the portion to the right having a gablet with terracotta panels lettered "ECKERSLEYS" "LIMITED" flanking a diamond motif lettered "A / 1912 / D". The doorway in the 7th bay has an elaborate terracotta architrave with panelled pilasters bearing consoles, frieze lettered "OFFICES", cornice with egg-and-dart enrichment and broken segmental pediment lettered "1904". There is one wide segmental-headed window at ground floor to the left, but all other windows are square-headed with shouldered architraves incorporating triple key-blocks, and have dentilled wooden transoms and 3-pane upper lights. The left return (facing the entrance to Swan Meadow Works), 2:1:2 windows has (inter alia) an oriel window in the centre flanked by windows like those at the front, and mostly flat-arched windows at ground floor. The return to Pottery Lane is plainer. Forms part of important group of cotton mills and ancillary buildings on this site, collectively a very striking feature close to Wigan Pier.
