TEWKESBURY

SO8932 HIGH STREET 859-1/6/246 (East side) 27/07/73 Nos.117 AND 118

GV II

House in row, with shop. Early C16 or before, rear range later C16 or C17. Timber-frame with tension bracing to ground floor, tile roof, brick stacks. PLAN: Long front parallel-plan range, parallel to street, with lower cross wing to front right; the property has very low ceiling heights, and may have been a hall-house with solar cross-wing. There is also a parallel range to the rear, with a gabled projecting wing to its right (rear left). EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, formerly with attic. The set-back range has a series of 13 small square lights, in groups, (between framing members, which are not exposed), above a projecting C19 three-bay shop front, with slender cast-iron colonnettes carrying a fascia with moulded cornice, partly concealed by later flat-arched aprons; the glazed door is set back to the right. The gable has braced large-panel framing, with a blocked 2-light window in the gable, above a C19 three-light casement with horizontal bar, and a C20 shop front with door to the right; this door formerly gave to a throughway, now incorporated within the opened-up ground floor. A brick stack to left has been raised with a diagonally set shaft, and a further small stack rises from the right gable end, having been raised when the adjoining No.119 (qv) was built. There are some scalloped ridge tiles. The back has a section in large-panel framing to the left,including a large 3-light casement at the eaves, and a gable with braced framing, right, with a later brick wing attached. A glazed conservatory section extends round 2 sides of the wing. INTERIOR: the upper levels were not accessible, but the roof should give useful information about the original format of the building. The ground floor is opened through, but retains most of the heavy framing, with posts, beams, and rafters, and part of one cruck-like member. Various props have been inserted, using old timbers, where walls and partitions have been removed, and the rear wall of the early building has been taken out for most of its width. This building needs further investigation to establish its historical growth.
