Listed Building record MDR10719 - The Gables, Lower Street, Doveridge

Type and Period (2)

Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

This is a brick building of two-storeys and attics standing end-on to the road. Footings seen during pipe-laying to the east and west of the present building suggest that there has been an earlier building running east-west on the site. This was probably a 16th century timber-framed three-room house with central lobby entry. The major part of the present structure was built in brick in the second half of the 17th century, probably retaining part of the earlier structure. A northern extension was built in the 18th century, and then the remaining parts of the earlier building were replaced in the 19th century. This was probably not a farm, but rather the house of a merchant or minor landowner. (1)
