Lloyds Bank, 17 Cross Street. Bank. Probably c1887. Stone ashlar front; top of W side wall is rendered and may be of brick, along with rest of building. Roof covering not visible from street, but probably of slate. 2 red-brick chimneys on ridge, with stone caps designed as entablatures. Probably a double-depth plan. 3 storeys with garret. 6-window range. Ground storey divided into 6 bays by thick square columns, paired at the left-hand end and in the centre. Bays mostly glazed and of equal width except for a wider bay second from each end; 7-panelled door in right-hand bay. Above the columns is an entablature with paired brackets corresponding to each column. Upper storey windows have moulded architraves, the taller 2nd-storey windows with friezes and triangular pediments. Continued cills in 3rd storey. Dentilled top cornice and blocking-course, the former supported by a large console at the right-hand end. The windows in all 3 storeys formerly had ornamental iron guard-rails, those in the ground storey incorporating the words BANK and FOX FOWLER & Co. INTERIOR: not inspected, apart from banking hall, which seems to have been wholly altered in late C20. Included for group value.
