Off the list. Liskeard warehouse

Warehouse, Well Lane, Liskeard by Henry Rice (c.1840; Grade II)

A rare example of a Henry Rice industrial building. Rice (1808-76) was Borough surveyor and ran a hugely busy practice from his office in Liskeard. Over 100 of his buildings remain in-and-about the town centre. This warehouse is an excellent example of how Rice could adopt Classical styling on his buildings. It is situated on Well Lane, in the heart of the town.

In April 2019 planning permission has been approved to convert the building into two flats. Scaffolding covers the building this week. Here is a link to the planning application.

Since 1969 the aims of the Cornish Buildings Group have been to stimulate interest, appreciation and knowledge of good building in Cornwall, and to encourage the erection, protection, repair and recording of such buildings. Like any amenities group, we depend on numbers, strength and support of our membership, who provide the force and knowledge that have made us effective for over fifty years. We encourage the protection and repair of historic buildings whether these are listed buildings or simply good examples of traditional building. We aim to encourage good architecture and to raise the general standard of building throughout the county. We hope that our generation may leave behind it buildings which will be looked back on with that same pleasure and enjoyment that we experience when we look at the architecture of past ages.
