305/4/6 Dent's Terrace



Group of 10 Almshouses. 1865. Sir George Gilbert Scott and J. Drayton Wyatt, architects. Good dressed limestones in cream, yellow and pink, concrete tile roofs, end on to street with coped gable, large stack and carved coat of arms to street, then almshouses paired under coped gables, stepped to slope, and all with gabled back exteriors, stacks with simple cappings and stepped plinths. One and a half storeys, each dwelling with 2-light dormer window with octagonal central colonnette, casements with horizontal bars, ground floor 3-light casement with square heads, splayed, octagonal stepped mullions and horizontal bars. Gabled porches with paired shouldered openings to plank doors and central footscraper. Various relieving arches. In porch gables, alternatively '1865' and 'D', original hopper-heads, cavetto gutter and downpipes. This group is externally as built, and is a good example of the generosity of John Coucher Dent and his wife Emma Dent, at that time owners of Sudeley Castle.
