SO8218NE COLLEGE GREEN 844-1/7/72 (South side) 12/03/73 Nos.8 AND 8A and attached wall and outbuilding to College Yard (Formerly Listed as: COLLEGE GREEN No.8) (Formerly Listed as: COLLEGE GREEN Garage to No.8)

GV II

Includes: Nos.1, 2 AND 3 COLLEGE YARD. House assigned to the Prebendary of the First Stall of Gloucester Cathedral, now apartments. C15 structure, many later alterations including refronting in mid C18, additions in early C19, and substantial alterations and refitting in late C19. Brick, some timber framing; rear wing and outbuilding, facing College Yard, is timber-framed with rubblestone rear wall to outbuilding; slate roof, brick stacks. PLAN: double-depth range facing College Green with a large bow added at its western end, rear wing to left. The former wing of the house to right, now Nos 1, 2 and 3 College Yard, is a C15 structure with, on its west front, a projecting c1900 structure (part of No.1) and a C16 outbuilding to the south end. EXTERIOR: two storeys and cellar; the C18 front of three bays to left, to right the projecting, semicircular bow, originally single storey, added in early C19, and heightened to two storeys in late C19; the bays of the C18 front with a raised brick band at first-floor level. To both the front of the range and the bow a moulded timber, dentil eaves cornice; entrance doorway in third bay from left in doorframe with moulded architraves, entablature with pulvinated frieze and pediment. To left of doorway two sashes with flush frames and glazing bars (3x4 panes) in openings with rubbed brick segmental-arched heads; on the first floor three similar sashes in openings with flat-arched heads, the two sashes to left with decorative cast-iron window guards; on ground floor of bow three sashes with glazing bars (3x4 panes) in openings with flat-arched heads each of four stone voussoirs and raised keystone; 5 tall late C19 first-floor windows floor, each with



a short upper sash frame with lead light glazing. Mid C18 right-hand (west) wing, probably incorporating an earlier structure and some of No.3 College Yard: in north gable end a raised brick band at first-floor level, doorway to right and two sashes to left with glazing bars (4x3 panes); on the first floor two similar sashes; in gable a three-light casement. This block is clearly secondary to the C15 wing which extends at right angles to the rear (south). The C15 wing, which incorporates all of Nos.1 & 2, is a long timber-framed range with moulded fascia to jetty with Perpendicular shafts to ground-floor bay divisions. Mixture of C19 and C20 fenestration, with glazing bar sashes to the north end. Much of this west-facing front has been obscured by later additions, most notably a c1900 partly-roughcast range to the centre which adjoins a mid C20 addition set between this range and the outbuilding which extends westwards to meet boundary of Three Cocks Lane. The outbuilding has been partly rebuilt in C19 brick, but has retained a timber-framed south gable and some elements of original framing. INTERIOR: No.8 not inspected. In No.8A mostly late C19 joinery, with especially elaborate details in double-depth drawing room on first floor, C18 fireplace surround noted in rear part of room. Nos 1, 2 & 3 College Yard not inspected but likely to have retained C15 features. Outbuilding has retained chamfered beams and original trenched-purlin roof (not seen). SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: C18 brick wall extends north from outbuilding, along Three Cocks Lane, to meet range to rear of No.9 (qv).
