The Old Bell Hotel, No. 51 Sadler Gate
Located on the historic Sadler Gate, The Old Bell Hotel had been neglected for years; the roof was leaking and the rainwater goods were either damaged or plastic. The mock Tudor facade was crumbling with missing timber and render parts. The upper floor windows were in a state of disrepair and the majority of the ground floor windows were boarded up, including the curved corner windows. The lanterns had been blocked from the inside and covered from the outside. The main structure was missing along with the leaded glass and an inappropriate modern shop front had been fitted.
The scope of works included repairs to the roof, windows, doors, building frontage and fabric repairs. The historic shop front was reinstated and the associated lanterns repaired.
