Now known as the Derwent Business Centre. (1) Brick built two storey Italianate former bonded warehouse, similar in style to the other buildings in St. Mary’s goods yard which are listed. Built in 1882 as a cheese and beer warehouse for the railway, it has a double hipped slate roof with cornices at eaves, and a tower at the side with deeply overhanging hipped roof. A survivor of the Midland Railway’s establishment of its St. Mary’s Goods Yard. Converted to offices recently and little altered from its original form. The roadway is raised up to first floor level for vehicular access to doorways on the west side for loading goods. Space within ground floor in which the rail line passed through has been retained. Designed by John Holloway Sanders for Midland Railway. (2)
