Appraisal

An imposing building with the townscape which is considerably taller than its flanking buildings. A sense of grandeur is further created by the retention of many of its original decorative features, such as corbels, quoins and window surrounds. These serve to enliven the facade and give it an artistic appeal. Due to its size and appearance it acts as a focal point within the streetscape.
