Additional Information

The plans provide for the re-building of a warehouse in Battye's Yard owned by Sir Charles Sikes. Charles William Sykes (1818-1889) was a member of a prominent local banking family and became manager of the Huddersfield Banking Company.He was knighted in 1881 in recognition of his advocacy of the Post Office Savings Bank. He invested some of his wealth in property including a number of large inns and the fragmented Pack Horse estate. Sikes had previously secured approval for another warehouse development in the Pack Horse Yard (See Deposited Plans 1298 dated May 1884). Battye's Yard and Pack Horse Yard were connected. The re-built two storey warehouse was to be of five bays, with approximate dimensions of 45 feet x 20 feet.
