TEWKESBURY

SO8933 HIGH STREET
859-1/5/227 (West side)
No.67

GV II

House in row, ground floor remnant only, now (1992) used as a
club-room. Early C17, remodelled C19. Painted brickwork, flat
felted roof. Remains of a former 3-storey parallel-plan
jettied house, reputedly destroyed by fire in the mid-C20, but
retaining an important early doorway and door. One storey with
basement, 2-windowed. 4-pane sashes in eared architraves on
stone cills. Pavement cellar access hatch. To the left, set
back on 2 sandstone steps is a fine 4-plank studded door with
strap hinges, under the remains of a deep moulded bressumer,
and in curved moulded brackets: with paterae (bracket to left
is late C19 replacement) The front has a high plinth, and a
blocking course with parapet above a 3-course brick string.
The single room behind appears to be a C20 rebuilding. Ross
(The Book of Tewkesbury) has an 1890 view showing a fine
jettied building with large Tudor stack in this position
immediately adjoining the Black Bear Inn (qv); it shows
clearly that at that time the ground floor, with its set-back
door, was exactly as it now remains, so that the underbuilding
and fenestration are of C19 date. There was also a very grand
early staircase.
