Reinstatement Cost Assessment for Building Insurance purposes
- Cox Mahon
- The Tudor House, New Road, Bromsgrove
On behalf of our client, GJS Dillon undertook an inspection of The Tudor House, 1-3 New Road, Bromsgrove for the purposes of assessing its reinstatement cost for building insurance purposes.
The property, formerly known as The Hop Pole Inn, was built in 1572 in the High Street but now stands in New Road. It was originally built as a private residence and the owner’s initials – WB – can be seen above the upper window. In the 18th Century it was owned by the Boulton family, but it is not known when it became an Inn. By the early 1800s, the property had been divided into two, the right-hand side of the building becoming a shop. Subsequently, it was decided to demolish the building to create a new road to Aston Fields and the railway station. With an outcry from the community to save the building and at the last moment, the Bromsgrove Local Board sold the timbers to the Worcester City and County Banking Company who re-erected the building as their new banking premises in New Road.
