A splendid range of early 19th century bonded warehouses built in the 1840s for Amos Spoor. Flemish bond brick with ashlar plinth and dressings; felt covered roof with stone gable copings. 7 storeys. Round-headed openings with projecting stone sills. South elevation to The Close has tall wide rusticated sandstone arched entrances. Hanover Street and Hanover Stairs which bisect the warehouses, were also built at this time. A fire in 1997 irreparably damaged the western warehouse and so these were demolished. LISTED GRADE 2
