Long Description:

The area known as Little Germany got its name because a large number of German merchants spent large sums of money constructing imposing warehouses for the storage and sale of their goods.

The warehouses in this area specialised in expensive textiles such as worsted and silk and the quality of the warehouse buildings were designed to impress the customers that visited the premises.

Little Germany is one of the best preserved parts of Bradford City Centre and many fine building still exist in the area.

The chimney flue and triple chimney stacks are near the corner of the building and form an interesting architectural feature.

Decorative carved stone rope work on the outside walls has been incorporated into the chimney itself.
