SO8932 BACK OF AVON
859-1/6/2 (East side)
Warehouse, formerly Tewkesbury Brewery. c1860s. English bond
brickwork, slate roof.
A sturdy C19 industrial building with gable facing the Avon,
but with a longer return frontage to Quay Street, at an obtuse
4 storeys. The Back of Avon frontage is 2-windowed with arched
multi-light replacements with radial bars, in blue brick
bull-nose jambs and flush stone key, on flush chamfered cills.
The ground floor formerly had 2 arched doors, that to the left
now blocked, and the other with a plank door set in deep
reveals. 4 flush blue brick bands at the arch springings, and
plain rendered cill-band to the second floor; on this band was
formerly painted 'TEWKESBURY BREWERY', but this has been in
part rubbed off. The gable has brick 'modillions' under a
3-course oversailing coping, and pilaster heads in brick with
stone capping, and it contains a stone carved medallion with a
hand holding a wheatsheaf, in bold relief.
The Quay Street frontage is in 4 storeys, 3-windowed, in
detail similar to the other front. A frieze similar in detail
to the pilaster-heads to the gable, and various openings,
including replacement lights to blue brick jambs. First floor
loading opening with pair of plank doors to an arch. The
ground floor has 2 small blocked arched openings and one with
a C20 door. The second floor has a stone decorative panel as
at the front. The rear gable is as the Back of Avon facade,
but with windows only to the second floor; lower adjoining
buildings have been subsequently removed.
INTERIOR: has a central row of cast-iron columns.
Although somewhat modified, this building remains a reminder
of a former industry, and displays the confident, hard-wearing
detail characteristic of Victorian commercial architecture. It
also holds a key position in both Back of Avon and in Quay
