18 Leeming Street — Subway

The Subway sandwich shop at 18 Leeming Street in 2017

Designed by Vallance & Westwick for Marchant & Sons, a well-reputed tailoring service

Brief History

Like many of the buildings on Leeming Street, this was built in 1901 to a design by Vallance & Westwick for Marchant & Sons. Marchant & Sons was a tailoring service, one of whose suits, made in 1938, is in the collection of the V&A Museum in London.

The Subway sandwich shop is a popular American chain which specialises in ‘submarine’ sandwiches (so named because of their shape).

Condition

The building is in good condition but the windows are not original as the upper floors have U.P.V.C. Its features are of a stone ashlar facade with stone dentil to the eaves.

Suggested Works

Explore the evidence for the original shop front and reinstate and also reinstate one-over-one timber sash windows to first and second floors.
