SJ8398 : 25 St Ann's Square, Manchester

25 St Ann's Square, Manchester
25 St Ann's Square, Manchester
A dignified little palazzo ("one of the finest in the city" thought Pevsner) built for Benjamin Heywood's bank, 1848. The architect was J.E. Gregan. The rusticated ground floor with round-headed windows set in semi-circular arches lends the building a presence beyond that warranted by its size alone. The bank is linked to the red-brick manager's house beyond, another fine, smaller palazzo. The continuous ground-floor cornice helps to hold the two together. Grade II* listed.
Banking is still the order of the day, the current purveyors being the Royal Bank of Scotland.
