SK3587 : Cutlers' Hall, Church Street, Sheffield

Cutlers' Hall, Church Street, Sheffield
Cutlers' Hall, Church Street, Sheffield
Given the significance of cutlery to Sheffield, unsurprisingly one of the city's major buildings. Built in 1832 to the designs of Samuel Worth and Benjamin Broomhead Taylor, and enlarged in 1888 by J.B. Mitchell-Withers (a pupil of Worth). His is everything to the right of the central entrance. The style is predominantly Greek Revival. Giant fluted Corinthian columns (SK3587 : Detail of Cutlers' Hall, Church Street, Sheffield) and pilasters add monumentality, and above are ebullient coats of arms. The early C20th attic behind is "an unfortunate excrescence". Grade II* listed.
