An Edwardian building with an elaborate facade situated in what was a Norfolk town's banking hub is for sale.
The former NatWest bank, at 23 Hall Quay, Great Yarmouth, has a beautiful frontage and a secret inside.
Designed by architect Arthur Hewitt, it looks like it has got two huge storeys from the front. This is a trick of the eye because inside it has one tall banking hall and one room-deep space on the upper floors.
The former bank, built between 1904-1906, and situated next to the Star Hotel building, also has a Venetian window inside on large columns.
Premises along the quay used to be the home of five banks - Barclays, NatWest, Lloyds, HSBC and the Royal Bank of Scotland. Some of the buildings are empty, others earmarked for conversion into flats and some are still occupied as offices.
