Pin Factory Annexe of Folk Museum


Barn, later factory, now museum annexe. Mid C16, partly
rewalled in C17 and remodelled in late C18 for use as pin
factory; restored as workshop for Folk Museum by Gloucester
City Council after 1935. Timber frame, retaining some infill
panels of daubed staves and laths, otherwise C17 and C18
brick, plain tile gable-end roof, brick stack. A range of four
bays at rear of No.97 Westgate Street (not included), and
entered from passage on east side of Folk Museum, 99-101
Westgate Street (qv).
EXTERIOR: three storeys; the original C16 two-storey barn
survives as the lower part of the north gable wall, the
timber-framing in square panels set on a brick dwarf wall and
capped by the tie beam of the original gable; the side walls
of the barn largely rebuilt in brick in C17; in late C18 the
C16 roof removed and a third storey added in brick; on west
side on all floors in each bay a three-light horizontal
sliding sash with glazing bars; the large stack built into the
south-east corner probably for a factory forge.
INTERIOR: on the ground floor red sandstone paving slabs; the
first floor bridging beams are supported with curved struts;
over the second floor an open timber roof with king post
(Cox N: Gloucester Folk Museum, A Guide to the Buildings:
Gloucester: 1987-: 27).
