Emlyn Hughes House is a landmark four storey office building located on the intersection of Abbey Road and Holker Street in Barrow-in-Furness, England. It is named after local footballer Emlyn Hughes who captained both Liverpool F.C. and the England national team, a statue of Hughes is also located outside of the building. Emlyn Hughes House was designed by Bowker Sadler architects and built by Capita Symonds for Barrow Borough Council. there was much speculation that the development would become a 'white elephant' because a year after completion in 2008 the 1,600 sq/m of office space still remained vacant. The building is currently leased to a number of companies who use it largely for storage purposes. Emlyn Hughes House was built on the site of the former cinema which went by numerous names through its long history (including the Ritz, ABC, Astra and Apollo).
