TEWKESBURY

SO8932 HIGH STREET
859-1/6/270 (East side)
04/03/52 No.147

GV II

House in row, with shop. Early to mid C18 front on earlier
fabric. Flemish bond brickwork, asbestos-cement slate roof. 3
storeys and attic, 2-windowed. Behind the parapet is an
unusual paired dormer with moulded eaves to a hipped roof,
split at the centre, but with a continuous small-pane casement
front. First and second floors have plain sashes with moulded
exposed boxes to brick voussoirs and stone cills. C19 pilaster
shop front with central glazed door under a transom-light,
deep C20 fascia between console brackets. 3-course brick band
above the first floor, and 2-course above second floor; high
parapet with coping. The steep roof, with ridge parallel to
the street, suggests an early fabric behind a rebuilt front.
The brickwork has been repointed in light mortar, and there is
a series of 6 iron ties taken through the structure, which
shows signs of settlement in the facade. INTERIOR not
inspected.
