1869 – Granary, Bristol, Gloucestershire

Architect: Ponton & Gough


The Granary was built in 1869 for Wait, James and Co. As large amounts of grain were spread out to dry in this building, so it had to be strong, stable and warm, with maximum ventilation. A striking example of the Victorian fashion for using Venetian, Moorish and Byzantine features – completed in polychromic brickwork. In 2002 the building was converted into flats.
