|Town or city||Bristol|
|Design and construction|
|Architect||Edward William Godwin|
It was built in 1862 by Edward William Godwin. The ground-floor arches were originally open for access by John Perry and Sons' carriages.
It has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II* listed building. The building, which is an example of the Bristol Byzantine style, is on the English Heritage Buildings at Risk Register and described as being in very bad condition.
In September 2011 the Carriageworks Action Group was launched to develop community ideas for the future of the building, the neighbouring Westmoreland House and the land behind. The Action Group is made up of local residents, organisations and businesses, supported by Bristol City Council, and proposes to write a 'community vision' for the site. A spokesman for the council was quoted as saying that, "It is acknowledged by all that, beyond this, development of the site is still some years away."
