Old Judges House, 26, Westgate Street, Gloucester - Gloucester

Late C15 timber-framed merchant house, greatly enlarged and remodelled in late C16/early C17. Refronted and altered internally c1815. Operated as seed merchant for c100 years until 1989, then partly occupied as bookshop, before becoming vacant. Whilst some repairs have been undertaken, there remain many areas which require attention, particularly the roof and significant joinery. The upper floors are now accessible via a new lift, although not yet in use. This will generate income to help fund roof and joinery repairs.
