Britannia House, Briggate, Elland
Britannia House is the central building, facing the Elland Bridge. It was built in 1895 for the former Halifax and Huddersfield Union Banking Co. It is in an ornate style with giant columns of Aberdeen granite, the arms of Halifax and Huddersfield, and a seated figure of Britannia in the apex of the pediment. On one side is the Malt Shovel and on the other The Bridge, both 18C inns although the latter looks to have been 'modernised' in the 19C.
