FRETHERNE WITH SAUL FRETHERNE BRIDGE
9/172 Fretherne Bridge House
Bridgekeeper's house at Fretherne Bridge on Gloucester and
Sharpness Canal. Early C19, possibly by Robert Mylne, first
principal engineer to the Gloucester and Berkeley Canal Company.
Rendered, artificial slate roof, small brick ridge stack. Small
cruciform structure with shallow pediment to each face presenting
single storey towards canal with 2 storeys to remaining sides.
Main front to canal has been altered and has 2 fluted Doric
columns, no longer in antis, but with inserted 2-light C20 window
to left. Pediment with plain frieze and cornice remains. Original
beaded doorcase with door of 6 bolection-moulded panels also
remains. Scattered fenestration, with 16-pane sashes to sides.
Two-storey lean-to at rear with small flanking single-storey wings.
Survey work for the original canal route from Gloucester to
Berkeley was carried out in 1793 by Mylne. In 1813 the terminal
point was changed to Sharpness and the canal opened in 1827.
