104 Mary Street is the location of Cutlers Yard dating to the latter part of the 19th Century. The building was occupied by W. Harrison & Sons, who were founded in 1852 and manufactured razors and strops (the leather strip that is used to polish razors), scissors and surgical cases. As is usual for the design of workshops from this era, a central cobbled courtyard allowed access for horse and cart for shipping the goods around the city and beyond. This grade II listed building has now been restored and is part of Symon Donovan Properties Ltd. who provide affordable student housing.
