WORCESTER

SO8454NE BRIDGE STREET 620-1/16/68 (South East side) 05/04/71 Nos.5-13 (Consecutive)

GV II

Includes: 1, 2 & 3 Warmstrey Court QUAY STREET. Includes: No.2 QUAY STREET. Terrace of 12 houses, now flats, house and shop. Numbered right to left, described left to right. Probably c1771-99 in 2 stages of build with later alterations including probably mid-late C19 shop front to left and conversion to flats with rebuilding to ground floor 1981-3. Possibly by John Gwynn of Shrewsbury, architect of Worcester Bridge (qv). Brownish-red brick in Flemish bond with ashlar plinth, first-floor band and entablature, mainly timber doorcases; 2 houses at right have stucco to ground floor and red gauged brick arches; slate roofs, hipped to left, tall brick party-wall stacks with oversailing courses and pots. PLAN: Terrace occupies one entire side of sloping street and is canted to left end to follow angle of street; mainly 3 windows each with side stairhalls. 3 storeys + attics, with 3-lower-storey range at left, 3:24:7 first-floor windows. Stucco detailing: horizontal rustication to ground floor at right. Continuous chamfered plinth; first-floor sill band; main range has frieze and cornice, range at right has low, coped parapet; all stepped to follow slope of street. 6/6 sashes in plain reveals and with flat arches of gauged brick throughout, except those to ground floor at right have flat chanelled arches and keystones; 2 first-floor windows to No.13 on splayed angle are painted; first-floor windows to No.10 have cast-iron scrolled balconettes. To left angle a shop front with painted brick plinth, plate-glass windows canted in to part-glazed entrance with lower panel, frieze and fascia with dentil cornice. Otherwise entrances to main range have steps to 6-panel doors with fanlights in panelled reveals and with 3/4 engaged Doric doorcases with open pediments (mainly renewed); 2 entrances at right are stuccoed and have 6-panel doors (upper panels raised and fielded, lower panels flush), in architraves with fluted Doric pilasters, frieze and pediment. Flat-roofed attic dormers have 3/6 sashes where original. Return to Quay Street: 3-lower storeys, 2 first-floor windows. Ground floor has 3/6 sash and 8/8 sash, both in near-flush frames and with cambered arches. Otherwise replacement windows all under cambered arches. Entrance a 6-raised-and-fielded-panel door in timber doorcase with frieze and cornice. Rear: mainly 6/6 sashes with elliptical arches. Attics have 3/3 and 6/6 sashes. HISTORICAL NOTE: the development of this and the terrace opposite (Nos 14-43 consecutive (qv)) seems to coincide with the erection of Worcester Bridge (qv), from which Bridge Street commences, built 1771-80 by architect John Gwynn. During the C19 these houses were converted to shops with flats over, the shop fronts were from a variety of dates; the terrace was brought back to domestic occupation as flats in the 1980s. No 2 was totally demolished in 1981-3, Nos 3 and 4 (now Nos 1-3 Warmstrey Court) retaining their C18 facades. Forms a good group with terrace to west side of Bridge Street, John Gwynn House (qv), both forming a visual approach to listed buildings in Broad Street (qv) to north and grouping with Worcester Bridge (qv) to south.
