The Fleece Hotel, 19, Westgate Street, Gloucester - Gloucester

C15 timber-framed range most recently occupied as the Fleece Hotel. The building has been vacant for some time. It is in poor repair, with some internal decay. A series of opening up works were carried out early summer 2010 to provide more information on the condition. Ownership has passed to Gloucester City Council who have done some emergency repairs, and a Timber Frame Report and Options Appraisal have now been produced. A deliberately-started fire in the rear Edwardian wing in July 2017 destroyed the roof, although the main C15 core was not affected.
