Ocean Chambers & Burstalls Solicitors - 54 Lowgate - Hull - HU1 1EN

Burstalls Solicitors practice from Ocean Chambers, 54 Lowgate, Hull. Ocean Chambers is Grade II Listed and was built in 1899 to 1901.

The building has a strong stone facade, is asymmetrical with Baroque touches, has shallow cantered bays divided by squat ionic columns, mannerist gables and a heavy rusticated entrance. As well as the imposing exterior of the building, the interior is particularly impressive and of great interest. . The staircase is of Edwardian construction and is particularly fine. It is understood this is one of the reasons why the building is Grade II listed.

Perhaps most interesting are the spacious vaults which run under the footprint of the building and under Lowgate As part of Heritage Open Days, Burstalls Solicitors will open part of the building and these vaults for viewing, where you can see the fine labyrinth of passages under the footprint of the building.

The internal workings of the safe door will be open for inspection on your visit, the safes being built by the same company that installed the Harrod's London Store Vaults and also the Army and Navy Safes in Rotterdam.
