1. 5111 HALL INGS BD1 St George's Hall SE 1632 46/133 14.6.63 II* 2. 1851-53 designed by Lockwood and Mawson and the partnership's first major public commission. A large hall for concerts and meetings, built in a late classical temple style based on the Birmingham Guildhall but, typically for its date, rather ponderously detailed. Ashlar sandstone from quarries near Leeds as the Bradford quarries were not then in full production. The ground floor, treated as a high podium, is rusticated and vermiculated with panelled impost string and large garlanded fluted consoles rising above flanking mezzanine window, to support deep modillion bracket entablature. Pedimented pentastyle engaged portico of the Composite order with quoin pilasters forming the entrance front above the podium and the 9 bay wide elevation given the same giant engaged order. Similar return to Drake Street with flat entablature. Very important corner site.
