A listed building at 6-10 Millgate, records suggest that it may have been the premises of a wholesale grocery business in the late 19th century. The building is of brick with stone dressings, of four storeys, with a full-height loading slot, left side. The ground floor was of stone but much of it has been replaced in brick, late 20th century. Deep bracketed eaves course, stone quoins. The building is canted to the curve of the street, and there are quoins at this point. Windows are generally in ornamented stone surrounds, those of the first and second floor with a sill band. The Italianate architectural style is closely related to commercial warehouse design in late 19th century Manchester typified by warehouses of the 1860s-80s by the firm Clegg & Knowles.
Until recently it was occupied by Gorvins Solicitors.
