GV II*

House in row, formerly the Old Fleece Inn. Early C17. Facade, much restored in late C19, of close-stud timber-frame with exposed bracing and lozenge panels, plaster infill, tile roof, brick stacks. PLAN: a double-jettied front, substantially restored, to a very steep roof parallel with the street, and with deep rear wings. Originally a side-entry plan, once common in Tewkesbury. A long rear wing was added in the C17, with a very steep pitched roof and timber framed gable; attached is a lower gabled unit with horizontal boarding, and a further, detached lower wing beyond this, in brick and tile, but with half-timbered gable, and a loading opening. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, 2- windowed. At first and second floors are 2-light paired casements with transom and central mullion, on moulded cill bands, returned to the projecting sides; at the first floor is a small light on each of these returns. The ground floor, in rendered brick or stone, has a wide opening to 4-centred head and chamfered surround, stopped to the plinth, to the right. The plate-glass shop front is set back from the arch, and to the left is a moulded panelled door to a 4-centre head and a shallow transom light, with a plain glass display window attached. Jetties are carried on carved brackets, 3 at ground floor and 2 at the upper levels, and with moulded bressumer facings, that to ground floor with brattished top. Deep modillion eaves to moulded cornice and gutter box. A painted Royal Arms with supporters is set below the first floor windows, centrally. Some framing is visible in the right gable. INTERIOR: ground floor has features concealed; upper floors not accessible but noted as having retained original and C17 features including panelling.
