Grange Court, Leominster, Herefordshire

Grange Court in Leominster is a fine example of the black and white timber framed buildings of the area – and one of John Abel’s finest  buildings.

Built in 1633 at The Buttercross, on the junction of High Street and Broad Street. In 1753 it became the Town Hall and Court. Then in 1855 it was dismantled, moved and then rebuilt as a Victorian private residence in its present location at the edge of the Priory gardens in the town centre. The open ground floor was closed in and a wing built at the back. When it came up for auction in 1939, the council bought it for Council Offices to prevent its sale and export to an American buyer.

Grange Court is a Grade II listed building

The building is supported by twelve large oak columns and was financed by the local gentry. It was lavishly decorated with shields bearing their respective arms, sadly these did not survive. Adding to the decorations were busts of men and bare-bosomed women with inscriptions.
