Competition entry number 1, Cotton Exchange, Church Street / Darwen Street, Blackburn, Lancashire: plan of one pair floor
|Brakspear, William Hayward (1819-1898)
NOTES: This was the winning design by Brakspear and Thomas Dickson who was in partnership with him at the time. Owing to lack of funds it wasn't built. In 1859 the scheme was revised and a new competition and a new site in King William Street was chosen. The winning entry was again by Brakspear, but the stye was gothic revival and only part of it was built 1862-1865. Early in the twentieth century the building was converted into a cinema. It is listed Grade II.
