(Former) Masonic Hall (1875-77) Surrey Place, Sheffield. Built “of well-cut ashlar in a restrained Italianate style . . . The high ground floor windows and blank first floor, pierced only by lunettes set high up under the deep modillion eaves, reinforce its solidity and secretiveness” (Harman and Minnis, 101). The building was “extended to the right in 1888 and 1909-12” (101).
