90 High Street and the Doddo Restaurant
The Doddo Restaurant, 90 High Street, (named after a Saxon Thane) was found near here until its demolition between 1965-9. Its loss was a symbol of resistance, and the Civic Society was formed in 1965 to prevent a repetition. In 1970 Tewkesbury was named a Conservation Area under the 1967 Civic Amenities Act. The current shopping precinct was built amidst controversy - but other buildings were subsequently saved
