The Clarks Wood Company warehouse is a 19th-century industrial building in Silverthorne Lane, Bristol.

It dates from about 1863,[1] but only two of its original walls remain. It is known to have been used early in its history as a railhead warehouse for William Butler's tar works at nearby Crew's Hole, and later became part of St Vincent's Works.[1]

It is an example of the Bristol Byzantine style of architecture, and has been listed by English Heritage as a grade II listed building.[1]
