68 Fore Street

Grade I listed. It was built around 1723 for Nathaniel Houlton, another son of the clothier Joseph Houlton. Later, it was the home of another clothier, Samuel Salter, whose Home Mills were directly opposite. No. 5 Fore Street, on the other side of the road, still bears the inscription Samuel Salter & Co. above the archway that once led into the mill. By the late 19th century, 68 Fore Street had become the administrative office for Trowbridge County Court but was subsequently acquired by Ushers, becoming another part of the brewery’s headquarters complex. Following the closure of Ushers in 2001, it became privately owned, was later converted into residential apartments, and is not open to the public.
