Former Nottingham and Notts Bank, Kirk Gate, Newark-on-Trent
Former Nottingham and Notts Bank, Kirk Gate, Newark-on-Trent
By Watson Fothergill, 1887, and one of a few very good Victorian buildings in the town. The style is Italian Gothic. Dominant though it is, the tower was shortened in 1957. Grade II listed.
Watson Fothergill, or Fothergill Watson as he began life, is Nottingham's Victorian architectural superstar. Walking around the city, it's not long before his idiosyncratic buildings jump out. Drawing on English traditions in a style sometimes labelled as Domestic Revival, his copious use of polychromatic bands of stone, timberwork and carved detail are very distinctive. In lesser hands, a mass of features results in an overwrought jumble, but Fothergill, despite apparently never working outside Nottinghamshire, and rarely even outside the city, was clearly skilled enough to blend everything together successfully.
