HISTORICAL NOTE: The Promenade was laid out in 1818 as a
tree-lined avenue from the Colonnade in the High Street to the
Sherborne Spa (on the site of the Queen's Hotel (qv)), by 1826
it was a carriage drive with gravelled walks to either side.
Buildings on the NW were the first to be developed. Although
originally on either side were 'rows of elegant houses,' by
1845 when Rowe wrote his Cheltenham Guide (published 1850) he
noted that 'nearly the whole of the left-hand (SE) side .. is
devoted to professional or business establishments.'
