SP0103 CHELTENHAM ROAD, Stratton
578-1/2/376 (West side)
Former Toll house, now house. Early C19, re-erected l880's.
Coursed squared limestone; stone slate roof; ashlar stacks on
gablets to left and right sides. Building is of rectangular
plan with 3-sided canted full-width bay to front. 2-storey
3-window range. 3 pointed windows to first floor with
Y-tracery and C20 leaded lights, one in each face of bay. 3
similar windows to ground floor. Pointed 6-panel door under
C20 gabled hood with artificial stone slates to left side.
Quoins to all front and rear angles. C19 wrought-iron
weathervane on apex of roof at front. C20 single-storey
flat-roofed extension to right. INTERIOR not inspected. This
building originally stood on the Gloucester Road adjacent to
Stratton Firs (qv) and probably pre-dates the opening of the
Cheltenham turnpike in 1827. A photograph of it in this
position shows a door at centre front with no window above it,
no weathervane and no stack to right. The materials were sold
in 1879 when the turnpike system was abandoned and re-erected
here in the l880's.
