Abstract:
A historic building assessment was undertaken in response to proposals for alteration works at 29 New Street Worcester. The earliest building on the site, for which we have physical evidence, was built circa 1577 of timber framed construction, with extensive cellarage built in a combination of coursed tile and brick. It is likely that the buildings were built for combined commercial and residential use, though the original arrangements are now obscure. By the early 19th Century the New Street/Cornmarket corner of the building had been rebuilt and additional dwellings had been erected in the rear courtyard area. The present property represents the southernmost part of the original framed building. In the mid 19th C the timber framed rear wing of the 17th C was partially demolished to accommodate a new brick built block constructed over a shallow cellar. A fire in 1983 destroyed the flat and lead to loss of much of the staircase and extensive damage on the upper floors. The proposed works will have almost nil impact on the more significant timber framed portion of the building, and will have only minor impact on a previously modified area of the 19th Century brick structure to the rear and 1970s toilet block. No early surface finishes appear to survive within the building and therefore redecoration should not have any detrimental impact. There is a very high probability of significant archaeological deposits surviving immediately below both cellar floors, and beneath the solid floors at the rear of the building.
