Worcestershire Building Preservation Trust Pre 2010 Projects
36 Church Street, Pershore
This buildings was restored by the Herford and Worcester Building Preservation Trust in 1976. Apparently it was originally a house and bakery and at least part of the bay window on the frontage is original although did undergo some remodelling and renewal.
The building was first listed grade II (group value) in 1999 but the building was located within the Pershore Conservation Area, designated 1968, when the Trust undertook restoration work. The substantially complete 19th century frontage makes a positive contribution towards the character of the area.
Church Street lies beyond the medieval abbey precinct but was part of the early Saxon settlement area of the town. This area was redeveloped in the 18th and 19th century when Pershore began to grow in size and building in timber was replaced by brick. 36 Church Street is constructed of local red brick with Flemish bond.
We know very little about projects that were undertaken by the Trust at this time and would very much like to try and learn more about the history of the Trust and the buildings it restored before joining forces with WMHBT. If anyone is interested in undertaking some research on our behalf or if you know someone who might like delving through the archives in the record office we would be very pleased to hear from you. Results will be published in our Newsletters and on our website.
