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, particularly water penetration and vegetation growth. 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 group of quay front warehouses of the mid 19th century reflect Ramelton's historic status as a sea port. There are two buildings which have become progressively derelict over a number of years. The picturesque structures are a key feature of this historic townscape. The structure is of significant historic importance and requires conservation works to prevent further deterioration.
