GV II

House, formerly glovers' cottages, formerly stables. Late C18. Stone and brick, mainly rendered; plain tile roof; brick end stacks. 2-storeys, with added attic; 2-window range: 2-light casement to left, with blind opening and 3-light casement, to right; attic storey has completely weatherboarded front, hiding surviving louvred ventilation system. Central doorway with C20 part glazed door and flat hood; flanked by 2-light casements. Left gable has 3-light casement. 2-storey range to right, with slate roof and 3-light casement. To rear: gabled staircase projection; casements; dormer. INTERIOR not inspected but reported as having spine beams and dogleg stair at end of central passage; reset tympanum. Attic workshop probably unique survival of Ludlow's gloving industry. History: in the late C18 the site belonged to the Ashton family, master glovers and (probably shortly after 1785) a stone stable was built, then converted to cottages for glovers. The workshop was then added to the upper floor. This is thought to be the last remaining example in Ludlow of a structure used for a once prominent local industry and the exterior (and possibly interior) survival of the ventilation system is of much significance.
