SHREWSBURY

SJ4912NE ABBEY FOREGATE
653-1/12/73 (North side)
10/01/53 Park Social Club
(Formerly Listed as:
ABBEY FOREGATE
(North side)
Park Hotel)

GV II*

House, later hotel, now social club. Part probably early C16,
but largely late C17. Painted brick and timber-framing with
plain tiled roof.
Main range to right, 2 storeys, 5-window range to east
elevation, divided into bays by pilasters. Doorway with side
lights to right, and another to left of centre. 2-light wood
mullioned and transomed windows. Lower openings all have heavy
moulded brick segmentally-arched heads corbelled out. 3-light
wood mullioned and transomed windows above, with flat-arched
gauged brick heads. Simple moulded capitals of pilasters
continue as string course beneath wood modillion eaves cornice
to overhanging roof with 2 hipped dormers. 2 bays with similar
detailing in elevation to Abbey Foregate. Gable and axial
stacks, renewed.
To left of Abbey Foregate elevation, a wide cross wing of
earlier date. Render over timber-frame with 7-light window,
possibly for former shop in gable, 3-light mullioned and
transomed window in jettied upper storey, and 6-pane sash in
gable apex. Doorway in inner side of wing, with 3-light window
over.
The relationship of the 2 sections of the building suggests
that perhaps an earlier timber-framed building on the site was
partially rebuilt, leaving only the cross wing forming part of
the later C17 construction.
