Description

Built 1837 by harbour engineer, James Leslie, 2-26 (even nos) Chandlers Lane and patent slip is a two-storey range of former harbour workshops (historically used for ship haulage and repair, with a saw-mill, smithy, and rigging-loft) and the remains of the northeastern extent of the patent slip (a marine railway used for ship repair). The warehouse range was extended to the north with a semi-bowed end around 1850 (slightly lower in height and depth to the rear). Originally part of Panmure Shipyard, and from 1882 the Arctic Tannery. An L-plan wing was added to the sea front in around 1870 (now removed) with a low boundary wall. The former workshop range was converted to residential housing in around 2006. The patent slip was truncated, and new housing added to the surrounding area to form a partially enclosed residential estate.

The principal (east) elevation along Chandlers Lane is 21-bays wide (15 bays, extended to the north by 6 bays around 1850). There is a tall, squared, brick-built chimney with wrought iron tie-bands rising from a rubble-built base. There are two segmental-arched cart-entrances, one now infilled with glazing (2023) and the other roughly central within the range. The north, bowed extension is three storeys high and within the same eaves-line. The rear (west) elevation has four wide elliptical-arched openings to the right of the central cart-entrance with ashlar voussoirs (now infilled with glazing). The former rectangular-plan openings to the rear of the 1850 north extension have been infilled with timber cladding and glazing.

The windows are replacements throughout, sash and case frames in a variety of sizes and in a mixture of multi-pane glazing patterns. The 1850 extension to the north has small square windows at first floor level. There are three chimneystacks, two wallhead and one apex.

The piended roof is covered in slates with replacement piended dormer windows, predominantly grouped in pairs. There are some single rooflights in both roof pitches of the north extension.

Low sea protection wall, rubble-built.

The patent slip was largely infilled from the mid-20th century and only a small section now remains, ashlar sides and paved with 21st century metal railings and pedestrian steps leading to ground level.

Statement of Special Interest

The site was redeveloped for housing in around 2006. The only surviving historic structures are the former warehouse range along Chandlers Lane and the eastern part of the patent slip, which now forms part of a residential courtyard. The patent slip (or marine railway) historically had a 15 hp steam engine which could haul vessels up to 800 tons in weight out of the water onto a slipway. The tidal harbour to the west was gradually infilled from the early 1960s onwards to make way for the Tay Road Bridge (opened 1966).

Statutory address and listed building record revised in 2023. Previously listed as 'MARINE PARADE, HARBOUR WORKSHOPS AND PATENT SLIP'.

About Listed Buildings

Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating sites and places at the national level. These designations are Scheduled monuments, Listed buildings, Inventory of gardens and designed landscapes and Inventory of historic battlefields.

We make recommendations to the Scottish Government about historic marine protected areas, and the Scottish Ministers decide whether to designate.

Listing is the process that identifies, designates and provides statutory protection for buildings of special architectural or historic interest as set out in the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings which are found to be of special architectural or historic interest using the selection guidance published in Designation Policy and Selection Guidance (2019)

Listed building records provide an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building which has been identified by its statutory address. The description and additional information provided are supplementary and have no legal weight.

These records are not definitive historical accounts or a complete description of the building(s). If part of a building is not described it does not mean it is not listed. The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

The legal part of the listing is the address/name of site which is known as the statutory address. Other than the name or address of a listed building, further details are provided for information purposes only. Historic Environment Scotland does not accept any liability for any loss or damage suffered as a consequence of inaccuracies in the information provided. Addresses and building names may have changed since the date of listing. Even if a number or name is missing from a listing address it will still be listed. Listing covers both the exterior and the interior and any object or structure fixed to the building. Listing also applies to buildings or structures not physically attached but which are part of the curtilage (or land) of the listed building as long as they were erected before 1 July 1948.

While Historic Environment Scotland is responsible for designating listed buildings, the planning authority is responsible for determining what is covered by the listing, including what is listed through curtilage. However, for listed buildings designated or for listings amended from 1 October 2015, legal exclusions to the listing may apply.

If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the 1997 Act. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect subsequent legislation.

Listed building consent is required for changes to a listed building which affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest. The relevant planning authority is the point of contact for applications for listed building consent.
