Grain Store at Paterson

The two-storey brick grain store was built by William Corner in 1863.[1] It still stands, minus its roof, on Gresford Road just north of Paterson. When Corner built the granary he owned both of Paterson's flour mills on nearby Commercial Road and later lived across the road in Sussex House.
