Queen Anne Cottage and The Old Foundry
Friday Street

Nos 45 & 47 Friday Street, Queen Anne Cottage and The Old Foundry. This is the site of the former Henley tannery and Queen Anne Cottage. It is an elegant, early C18th double-pile dwelling and former residence of the master tanner and later Henley Works iron foundry proprietor. The Old Foundry was a service building, badly fire damaged and heavily restored and adapted to residential use after 1948. There is documentary evidence for this complex of buildings on this site and uses of the former tannery and from the mid-C19th as an iron foundry. (Buildings not recorded, but see Journals No 17 and No 28 of the HA&HG for details of the history, description  and photographs of the badly fire-damaged structures)
