Appraisal

This building has been vacant for a number of years and does not appear to be maintained. Most of the external fabric remains, but there are obvious signs of deterioration. There is no immediate danger of collapse but the condition is such that unless urgent remedial works are carried out the building will sharply deteriorate.

The early 19th century warehouse complex was constructed in conjunction with adjoining Custom House, but is now mainly vacant. There is a part of a slate canopy over the loading area which has been removed. A long term conservation plan and new use is urgently required for this prominent city centre location to prevent further deterioration.
