Abstract:
This document is an archaeological standing building survey of the former George Hotel, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire (SK 75123 19185), commissioned from Archaeological Building Recording Services (ABRS) by Queensbridge Homes Ltd in advance of the proposed conversion of the building to residential and commercial use. The George Hotel is an 18th century coaching inn it was extended in the mid 19th century and became one of the most prestigious hotels in the town. There are three clear phases; the westernmost bay is 18th century with potentially earlier features, most notably chamfered and stopped beams and a stone-built cellar. In the mid 19th century the hotel was extended to the east and the characteristic carriage arch was built. In the late 19th or early 20th century this eastern bay was extended to the north following the demolition of earlier stabling. The eastern range also contains faint traces of a potentially early 19th century building, possibly the building absorbed during the extension. Repeated modernisation, re-modelling and extensions has left a disjointed building which is difficult to accurately date based upon the physical evidence alone. The archaeological building recording survey provides a permanent visual (drawn and photographic) and descriptive record of the building in its current state. The archive will be held by Leicestershire County Council Museums Service, under the accession number X.A74.2014.
