Former Manchester & Liverpool District Bank
Former Manchester & Liverpool District Bank
Originally this was a branch of the Manchester & Liverpool District Banking Co Ltd. With the exception of the corners, it was constructed entirely of header bond where the header bricks are set in courses that are offset by half the brick width. The foundation courses are of engineering blue brick capped by splayed watertable copingstones to allow water to run off. The window surrounds are of red sandstone construction with flat lintels on the Market Street frontage and pointed arches on the Victoria Street side. The main entrance on Market Street is of stone construction and above the lintel there is a recessed stone tablet carved with the bank crest. The side entrance on Victoria Street is also of stone construction and the door has six panels. The slate roof has dormers set into it with triformed frames.

The building was originally the premises of the Manchester & Liverpool District Banking Company Ltd and Slater's Trade Directories show that it was being used as a bank over the period 1903 to 1911. In 1911 the bank manager was Joseph Dunn. It is not known when the building ceased being used as a bank.
