The first building to be released – Bishops Court - is the unique refurbished red brick building front New Road and facing the river which was originally opened in 1863. The building was built to a strongly ‘gothic’ style design, featuring the robust clock tower situated mid-way along the New Road frontage. The building with its iconic tower is visible from a number of viewpoints, including Fort Pitt, the river and Fort Amherst to the North West, and is a significant feature making a positive contribution to the character and appearance of the Conservation Area within which it sits.
