Nos. 19 & 19a Sadler Gate
This Grade II listed property is located on Sadler Gate, with a front elevation which dates to the early-nineteenth century and potentially older fabric internally. It forms a distinct group with the surrounding properties, which make a very positive contribution to the historic character of the conservation area. Prior to the grant the building was in a poor state of repair, with a leaking roof, damaged render on the front elevation, boarded windows at first floor level and an inappropriate modern shop front at ground floor level.
The PSiCA enabled works to repair the fabric of the building and ensure its water-tightness. This included the roof, render on the upper floors and the reinstatement of the first floor windows. A traditional shop front was reinstated at ground floor level, incorporating the surround of the side passageway. Following the completion of the works, this once vacant property found a new use as a bar/restaurant.
