298/5/2 BRISTOL ROAD 17-DEC-84 (East side) THORNBURY GRANGE (Formerly listed as: BRISTOL ROAD THE FARM)

II House, formerly known as The Farm. Of probable C16 origins, altered in C17 and C19. MATERIALS: Constructed of stone rubble with double Roman tiled roof and Cotswold stone tiles to stair turret; rendered stacks. PLAN: L-shaped plan running north-south with short range to north running east-west. It is of two storeys and concealed attic. EXTERIOR: West elevation: three windows, with a further window in the advanced parlour wing to left. These are 2-and 3-light wooden casements. There is a C19 conservatory in re-entrant angle. There are two low gables to the north elevation and a C17 casement window. Rear (now entrance) elevation: C17 octagonal stair turret with ovolo-moulded door-frame with depressed 4-centred arch head and studded plank door with strap hinges. A projecting stack adjoins the stair turret. The 1898 service wing, now a separate property called South Grange, is not of special architectural interest and is therefore not included in this listing. INTERIOR: Mostly altered, although retains stop-chamfered beams, and 4-centred arch fireplace in main bedroom. HISTORY: Thornbury Grange is believed to have C16 origins and was raised in the early C17, when the stair turret was added. In 1898 a service range was added to the south east; the front door was moved to the stair turret; and the former entrance door was replaced with a mullioned window. The building was subsequently subdivided, and by the early 1950s census reports indicate that it had become two separate properties; Thornbury Grange and South Grange. SOURCES: Linda Hall: The Rural Houses of North Avon and South Gloucestershire (1983) pg 237. David Verey and Alan Brooks: Buildings of England: Gloucestershire 2: The Vale and The Forest of Dean (2002) pg 758. SUMMARY OF IMPORTANCE: Thornbury Grange is an interesting building of predominately C17 date with possible C16 origins. It retains a number of features indicative of the C17 building phase and despite some later C19 alterations remains relatively intact.
