Warehouse Wednesday - North Parade Worcester

North Parade Warehouse

Beautiful isn't it?

A real warehouse, but full of ornate detail. To quote the entry from British Listed Buildings, "The most architecturally elaborate warehouse in Worcester associated with this significant regional industry.". If anyone knows a more architecturally elaborate warehouse in the country, I'd be interested to see it.

Behind me is the river Severn. Goods would be landed in front of the building and carried over the road you can see in the photo.  

I don't know anything about the building, but wonder quite why it is as decorative as it is. A few metres along the bank is a far eaiser to model warehouse.
South Parade Warehouse

Nice ghost signs, and without the twee, but practical, balconies, it would be an interesting and very useful (in model terms) structure. Not nearly as pretty though.

Bristol has some quite ornate warehouses in the Bristol Byzantine style
