Listing Text

Hayling Island
Nos 35 to 53 (odd)
9/10 (Norfolk Crescent)

(Formerly listed as
Nos 1 to 10 Norfolk


Terrace built circa 1825, as part of a scheme creating a resort, following the
construction of a bridge to Hayling Island in 1824. Brick, stucco, with a
slate roof. The crescent remains an incomplete design of symmetrical forming,
having an eastern terminal block, a curving range of 7 units to the projecting
centre-piece, and a single unit to the west: 3 storeys, attic, and basement
with area, windows. Yellow brick walls in Flemish bond, extending
through the attic level at end and centrepiece (with arched openings), rubbed
flat arches to the 1st and 2nd floor openings, stucco cornice and rusticated
ground floor which has recessed arched openings with keys (cambered to end and
centre-piece), stone cills, plinth. The end and centrepiece have stucco
pilasters through the 1st and 2nd floor (the end with Corinthian caps) and
panelled pilasters above the cornice, with rounded brick caps. Sashes in
reveals, 1st floor French windows opening onto a continuous balcony with
decorative wrought-iron rails (most windows being of later date). Most doorways
have radiating fanlights and panelled doors; the centrepiece has a solid porch
across the area, with double doors below a cambered arch and fanlight. The
raised and paved approach to each door is across the forecourt, with cast-iron
flanking rails continuing along the front of each basement area, with a gate
giving access to area steps. The rear of the crescent is an unbroken curve,
with flat-roofed 2-storeyed outshots (and some recent alteration).
