31 High Street, Droitwich Spa - Wychavon

The solar wing of a C14 timber framed town house. The front range incorporates historic timber work in the roof and ceiling structures. C17 extensions to the rear are in very bad condition with structural failure to the timber frame and walls. Failed rainwater goods and a roof in poor condition are letting water into the structure and rotting the frame. The building is only partly occupied. A scheme to convert and upgrade for use as an office, retail units and a residential unit has been approved. A Historic England Repair Grant was accepted in 2017 and repairs are underway.
