Needlers Street

 Found this interesting street name in Worcester and assume it is something to do with the glove making trade that once thrived there.  Just along from there the Pheasant Inn also two of  these wonderful wooden pillars which I could not decide whether they were acorns or pears, or something else?


  1. Must look for this when I next come down - we've never been to Worcester for a real look ! can't decide what the carvings are - this is what the listing for the building says -

    Circa 1580. Timber frame and plaster. 3 storeys, the uppers overhanging on moulded consoles, voluted shaft caps. 3 C18 sashes to 1st floor. 3 earlier leaded casements at 2nd floor. The posts flanking the courtyard have bracket corbels and enriched with foliate and fruit ornament. Cl9 leaded casements, ground floor, with wood cases with carved friezes and with cornices. Tiles. An attractive house with a suggestion of both Gothic and Renaissance. Internal panelling. N.M.R. photograph. Nos 25 to 30 (consec) form a group with Nos 33 and 34 and Nos 4 to 9 (consec) Cornmarket

  2. Needlers Street was where they made needles before it moved to Redditch.
