CA Aerial Dudbridge House 2003
What: A five-bay stone house built c. 1770.
Where: GL5 3NH At the top of Dudbridge Meadow off Dudbridge Road
Then: Built for the successful dyer, Richard Hawker, who ran the nearby dyeworks
Now: The house is now converted into flats

The design of the house is attributed to the architect Anthony Keck, who lived at nearby Kings Stanley from the mid-1760s onwards. A datestone on an outbuilding is inscribed IH 1779.

The house now faces a housing estate, built in the 1980s, on part of the old dyeworks site. Immediately to its west was the Midland Railway's Dudbridge Station and the line, which is now a walking and cycle track, ran past the house.
