Listing Text

SO 74 NE
5/78 Gatehouse and adjoining
range on north and east
25.3.68 sides of courtyard at
Beauchamp Almshouses
Gatehouse and almshouses. 1862-4 by P C Hardwick. Brick with limestone
dressings and tile roofs. The tower is of rectangular plan and has clasping
buttresses and a parapet with blind tracery decoration. Its south wall has a
moulded pointed doorway. Above are two tall narrow lights and a clock face.
A steep slated pavilion roof is set back behind the parapet. Two chimneys
with rubbed brick caps to right. The almshouses have mullioned windows, mostly
of three lights, with flush stone sill bands, and with blank trefoiled heads
on the ground floor. The first floor windows project upwards into gabled dormers.
To the right of the tower are two bays, with a pointed doorway between them.
To the left are five bays with wide pointed doorways between the first and
second, and the third and fourth. Above the doorways are timber dormers of
two lights under a pyramid roof. A more irregular house with a single-storey
lean-to links this range to one on the west side of the courtyard. This is
similar except for a doorway to the right. C20 bathroom additions link this
to a further range at right angles, facing south. This is of four bays with
doorways and dormers to each side of the two centre bays. Adjoining to the
west is a later addition dated 1889, of two bays in a similar style. The
chimneys have gauged brick shafts of rubbed brickina variety of patterns.
