TEWKESBURY

SO8932 CHURCH STREET
859-1/6/90 (South side)
04/03/52 No.13

GV II

House in row. Early or mid C17 front, but rebuilt after fire
c1985. Timber-frame with rectangular-panelled upper floor and
close-studding to other floors, plaster infill; brickwork to
rear, tile roof, brick stacks.
A street front with 3 jettied storeys, with throughway to the
left; the large main structure and wing almost entirely
rebuilt after loss through fire. 4 storeys, 1-windowed. The
third floor has a 6-light casement with transom, slightly
projected from the face of the square-panel framework. At
first and second floors is a wide canted oriel window with
1:5:1-lights plus transom, in narrow vertical-panelled
framing, and with square decorative panelling below the second
floor lights. The ground floor has a 3+3-light late C19 shop
front in casements with transom, above a stall riser of
herring-bone 2-coloured bricks. The framing members and the
window mullions and transoms all have ovolo-mould edges. The
jetties are on scrolled end brackets, and have moulded
bressumer fronts and returns, with a moulded eaves cornice.
Entrances are from the throughway.
INTERIOR retains a little of the original framing, with heavy
transverse beams, but is almost entirely a late C20
reconstruction. The front, however, remains an important
element in the street, and is a fine example of a
timber-framed town house front of the period.
