SJ4912NE ABBEY FOREGATE 653-1/12/73 (North side) 10/01/53 Park Social Club (Formerly Listed as: ABBEY FOREGATE (North side) Park Hotel)


House, later hotel, now social club. Part probably early C16, but largely late C17. Painted brick and timber-framing with plain tiled roof. Main range to right, 2 storeys, 5-window range to east elevation, divided into bays by pilasters. Doorway with side lights to right, and another to left of centre. 2-light wood mullioned and transomed windows. Lower openings all have heavy moulded brick segmentally-arched heads corbelled out. 3-light wood mullioned and transomed windows above, with flat-arched gauged brick heads. Simple moulded capitals of pilasters continue as string course beneath wood modillion eaves cornice to overhanging roof with 2 hipped dormers. 2 bays with similar detailing in elevation to Abbey Foregate. Gable and axial stacks, renewed. To left of Abbey Foregate elevation, a wide cross wing of earlier date. Render over timber-frame with 7-light window, possibly for former shop in gable, 3-light mullioned and transomed window in jettied upper storey, and 6-pane sash in gable apex. Doorway in inner side of wing, with 3-light window over. The relationship of the 2 sections of the building suggests that perhaps an earlier timber-framed building on the site was partially rebuilt, leaving only the cross wing forming part of the later C17 construction.
