The plans provide insufficient information, but they appear to apply for an extension to existing premises to provide a store room, built at chamber level over a yard, to which access is possible through the entry beneath the extension. Denton Lane was swept away in improvements at the end of the 19th century. The elevation shows the front elevation of the pawnshop and the end gable of Mitchell's China Warehouse, which fronted on to Castlegate. The property appears to be some of the town's earliest. On the opposite side of Denton Lane, the plan shows the location of the Brewer's Boy Inn. The 1879 Hudersfield & District Directory lists Walter Craven as a pawnbroker at 39 Denton Lane and John Mitchell, earthenware dealer at Number 16 on the west side of Castlegate. The same directory lists Joseph Sutcliffe of Fenay Bridge as a brewer, malster and farmer.
