    Arrow Derby Great Northern Railway Warehouse. Report 13.09.08 ARCHIVED

    Derby Great Northern Railway Warehouse
    Off Great Northern Road, Derby
    (North Side)
    Railway Warehouse
    Grade II
    Listed 05.09.86
    Railway Warehouse built for the Great Northern Railway at their Friar Gate Station 1877-78 by Kirk & Randall of
    Sleaford. Red brick and Welsh slate and glazed roofs with three brick stacks to east. Unusual plan of rectangular
    warehouse with triangular office block with a mezzanine floor to the east. Two and three storeys, over a basement.
    Double chamfered plinth, moulded corbelled eaves cornice. South elevation of twenty-one bays divided into groups
    of three by giant pilaster strips. The centre bay has a segmental arched entrance, otherwise the ground floor has
    segment headed windows with metal casements. Similar windows above except for two bays with double doors and
    two bays with bracketed out timber hoist structures under oversailing gables, one partly demolished. West elevation
    of 1-4-1 bays with mostly segment headed windows and a large tripartite railway entrance under riveted box girder.
    Bays one and five step forward. North elevation is similar to the south, but of 27 bays. The east end forms part of
    the offices and has three storeys with six segment headed sashes to each floor. Rounded corner to acute north east
    angle with tripartite arrangement of sashes to each floor. South east elevation of 2-2-5-2-2 bays. The outer pairs
    have two segment headed windows to three floors. The centre five bays have 1 similar windows above a large
    opening under a riveted box girder. The office block with rounded acute angle was built to front onto the proposed
    approach road from Friary Street to Friar Gate Station.

    Often seen on many forums, but until now I haven't had chance to have a look.

    It's great imposing building and a real shame it's been left to get like this.


    Yes, That is a car in the doorway...!
