|Commission: Built between 1892 and 1895. Shop, offices (known as 'Oriel Chambers') and living accommodation. Listed Building: Grade II.
The building, with its octagonal clock tower, replaced a much-loved earlier construction with a prominent clock which protruded over the intersection of the two streets from the upper storey. For this reason it was known as 'Clock Corner'
Messr. H. Arnold & Son, of Doncaster, were the contractors for the brickwork and joinery and Messrs. J. Ratcliffe & Sons, of the Crossland Hill Quarries, Huddersfield, for the stonework.
