Bishopston Hardware is located in a mid to late Victorian three
story six roomed house with a side entrance that at the turn
of the century had a shop front added and a new shop built
to the side.  These were two separate premises until 1960
when a new complex was formed now identified as number
211 Gloucester Road.  The original houses still exist but
can hardly be seen from the front although to the rear a
better view is possible. There are many original features
surviving such as coving, windows, coloured glazing and stairs.
