  • Description

    "Built in 1878 for the Northern Assurance Company. The style is (Italian) Palladian: the tall ground floor is surmounted by serpentine balconies that weave in and out. Giant half-fluted pilasters separate alternate pointed and curved headed windows, up to a heavy cornice with the Northern Assurance name and establishment date (1836) below. Above is a red-tiled mansard roof with heavy stone dormer windows. The building is Grade II listed". Photo by Mike Quinn, 2013, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
