Telfords Warehouse
Telfords Warehouse
As viewed from the towpath opposite.
The building itself provides one of the more interesting features in the historic city of Chester. Originally conceived by the famous industrial engineer Thomas Telford in the 1790ís, the Warehouse stands as a magnificent example of Georgian architecture and as a reminder of the once thriving port of Chester.
The building was constructed partly over the canal to allow boats to be located and unloaded from the full height of the loading bay within the building.
This grade II listed building was originally converted to a public house in the 1980ís by local architect James Brotherhood.
