  • Alveston House - a history

    N side of High Street, next to Mickleton Garage, camera facing W.

    West side wall and front wall of stone, all other walls brick.  Cotswold stone roof, 2s. Bay windows downstairs, sash windows upstairs, centre window blocked with stone. Extensive outbuildings at back.

    In 1890's Wm Lissaman Jnr had a 'steam joinery and moulding mills' there. (He was employed to finish the building of Kiftsgate Court. See Story of Our Village, Mickleton Women's Institute, 1961, p18.) It seems likely that extensive alterations were carried out by him on this house which appears to have been a small farmhouse with land, or orchard, around it well before his time.

  • An Old Wooden Panel

    This panel had formed part of the original fireplace in the Broadway home of Mr Peter Renfrew which had been built by a William Lissaman. The panel had been stored in a garage since the 1930s. On it, written in pencil, was: Made by C.E.Leech, Mickleton Nov. 14th 1908.  Research has found that Charles Edward Leech was a carpenter and had married a member of the Grinnall family.
