Listing Text


873-1/20/146 (West side)
18/06/70 Nos.76-80 (Consecutive)
Royal Terrace


Formerly known as: Nos.5-9 ROYAL TERRACE.
5 houses in terrace. 1816. Rendered, but No.80 in Flemish bond
brickwork, slate roofs.
PLAN: one-room width, double-depth with double roof to central
valley, and side entry to rear dogleg stair and lower service
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, attic and basement, developing to full
fourth storey at rear where ground falls away; each 3 windows,
plain sashes, and 2 late C19 gabled dormers with decorative
barge-boards and finials. No.76 retains glazing bars to the
9-pane windows at second floor, but at first floor a
full-width C20 display window has been inserted. In the
remainder the first-floor windows run down to floor level, but
the former balconies have been removed from all 4 units, with
individual railed balconies set to No.80, and all ground
floors have full width C20 shop fronts, concealing the
basement storeys. A plain band at first floor, moulded
cornice, blocking course and parapet, with 2 stacks to the
right party walls.
At the rear No.76 has been modified, No.77 has a good raking
dormer, and No.78 has 2 late C19 dormers and a brick hipped
service wing. No.79 has a raking dormer and a C20 extension,
and No.80 a paired 2-light early raking dormer. The rear wall
is parapeted.
Royal Terrace was originally of 18 houses, built in 2 phases;
this group belongs to the first phase, and has lost glazing
bars, balconies, and ground floor with basement detail. A
straight joint in the brickwork between No.80 and the
adjoining No.81 (qv), showing that work was not continuous
even in the first phase.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
