No. 9 Iron Gate
No. 9 is a four-storey, Grade II-listed property located in Iron Gate, constructed in yellow brick with polychrome details. The property dates to the late-nineteenth century, and connects to a 1960’s extension, forming a department store. An inappropriate modern shop front had previously been installed and the decision was made to reinstate the shop front based upon photographic evidence from the 1930s. While this was not contemporaneous with the age of the property, it did reflect the Art Deco interior of the store and other similar shop fronts in the surrounding area of the same period.
The modern shop front was removed and a new black granite surround was installed, along with a hardwood frame with bronze finish. Separate works were also undertaken to improve the frontage of the neighbouring 1960s property.
