SO8932 BACK OF AVON 859-1/6/2 (East side) Healings Warehouse

II

Warehouse, formerly Tewkesbury Brewery. c1860s. English bond brickwork, slate roof. A sturdy C19 industrial building with gable facing the Avon, but with a longer return frontage to Quay Street, at an obtuse angle. 4 storeys. The Back of Avon frontage is 2-windowed with arched multi-light replacements with radial bars, in blue brick bull-nose jambs and flush stone key, on flush chamfered cills. The ground floor formerly had 2 arched doors, that to the left now blocked, and the other with a plank door set in deep reveals. 4 flush blue brick bands at the arch springings, and plain rendered cill-band to the second floor; on this band was formerly painted 'TEWKESBURY BREWERY', but this has been in part rubbed off. The gable has brick 'modillions' under a 3-course oversailing coping, and pilaster heads in brick with stone capping, and it contains a stone carved medallion with a hand holding a wheatsheaf, in bold relief. The Quay Street frontage is in 4 storeys, 3-windowed, in detail similar to the other front. A frieze similar in detail to the pilaster-heads to the gable, and various openings, including replacement lights to blue brick jambs. First floor loading opening with pair of plank doors to an arch. The ground floor has 2 small blocked arched openings and one with a C20 door. The second floor has a stone decorative panel as at the front. The rear gable is as the Back of Avon facade, but with windows only to the second floor; lower adjoining buildings have been subsequently removed. INTERIOR: has a central row of cast-iron columns. Although somewhat modified, this building remains a reminder of a former industry, and displays the confident, hard-wearing detail characteristic of Victorian commercial architecture. It also holds a key position in both Back of Avon and in Quay Street.
