Along with Watson Fothergill, Nottingham's most influential Victorian architect was T C Hine. His flagship design was the impressive Adams building in the Lace Market, now a city landmark. Less well known is the Great Northern Warehouse, off Manvers Street. Built in 1857, it was considered revolutionary at the time because of the way it maximised space for corn storage. However, a lot of the original internal design was damaged in a fire in 1998. The bodies of two homeless women were found in the building in 2005 and it is now in a state of serious disrepair. Included here are some of the photos I used for a study of the building and for a large scale montage of the south face. It is closed to the general public.
