Essex House

16 Sep

Essex House is a late sixties/early seventies addition to Hull’s eclectic architecture, a substantial office block squeezed into the corner of Manor Street and Alfred Gelder Street that, as you pass gives little sense of its height due to the narrowness of the streets. It houses a range of businesses, solicitors, a call-centre, local government departments and last but not least the Coroner’s Office. At one time it used to be the place where countless thousands signed on for their unemployment benefit but that’s all been moved elsewhere.
