BURFORD AND UPON CHURCH LANE AND SIGNET (East Side) SP2512 (Enlargement) Fysshers Croft 7/6 11.3.76 GV II

House, once connected with Warwick Almshouses. Before 1476 but altered in mid-C19, modernised following fire. Rubble, front range slated, rear with Cotswold stone roof. Roughly L-plan. Front part 2 storeys; 2 windows, C19 sashes with single vertical glazing bars, central door now a window. Traces of a Tudor arch doorway, similar to those on the Warwick Almshouses to right. C19 gable and set-back barn-like wing to rear with 3 large stepped buttresses and 2 C17 wooden cross-mullion windows - thought to represent rear hall and chapel range of an almshouse arrangement. Interior: 2 fine pairs of upper crucks in rear wing. Stairs in angle; massive moulded cross-beams to ground floor of front range heavily coloured (red) ; fine and wide (inserted) C16 Tudor arch fireplace. Archaeological evidence indicates that this house preceded the Warwick Almshouses, and suggests that it was adapted as the warden's lodging with hall and chapel. D.
