Lovemead House

Grade I listed. Probably built around 1730 by clothier William Temple. Later, it was inhabited by another clothier, William Cockerell, and in the early 19th century, by William Perkins, also a clothier. A wing at the back of the house originally contained clothier’s workshop. Around 1840, the house was purchased by Dr. Christopher Tayler, who lived in the house and operated a surgery from the former workshops at the rear. That practice was inherited by his son, Dr George Taylor, also chief medical officer for Trowbridge, and later by his two grandsons. The medical practice eventually moved down the road, becoming Roundstone Surgery. The house became the local Conservative Association offices around 1950 and the West Wiltshire Conservative Club in 1965.
