1437 : Bronx And Brewer's Tudor


Westgate House provides a rare splash of the exotic to the sober stone-proper centre of Huddersfield. Designed in the early 1920s by the Newcastle architect Pascale Steinlet, it seems to blend elements of Arts and Crafts with almost a trans-Atlantic style (making a recent tenant, the clothes firm Bronx, a suitable inhabitant). Next to it stands the Royal Swan Hotel, built in a style that has been called "Brewer's Tudor".

I'd say more Cotswold Baronial than Bewer Tudor.

Love the Bronx building!
