Description
Detached concrete warehouse, built c.1930, having jelly mould or bunker-style appearance with roof and walls as single entity. Projecting flat-roofed concrete entrance porch to west elevation with square-headed door opening with double steel doors. Set back from road to the east of the main Locke's Distillery complex.

Appraisal

An unusual mid twentieth-century industrial structure, which may well be of a unique design. This building was constructed by the Dublin-based engineering firm of Delap and Waller. It curious design was apparently modeled on the arch construction of the Palace of Ctesiphon ( Iraq), which was studied in great detail by Waller during contract work in Syria in the early twentieth-century. This structure is an interesting part of the Locke's Distillery complex and is a curious addition to the architectural heritage of Westmeath.
