788/0/10178 ASHFIELD STREET
30-APR-03 46 AND 48
46-48 Ashfield Street. Pair of terraced houses. Mid 1820s. Stock brick with slate mansards, stone steps, cills and copings. Two storeys, basement and attics.
EXTERIOR: each house two windows wide. Arched doorcases to right with six-panel doors beneath decorative fanlights. To left, 6/6-pane sash windows with gauged arches over recessed basement lights. Similar windows to first floor; upper part of front wall of No 46 has been rebuilt. Mansard storey is probably a later C19 addition.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORY: this part of Ashfield Street was originally called Rutland Street, and these houses formed part of the development of the lands of London Hospital. An Act of 1802 led to the construction of the Commercial Road, thereby opening up Mile End Old Town for development. Horwood's map of 1819 shows the site as undeveloped; they are shown on Crutchley's map of 1829. These fourth-rate houses are the best survivals along this length of the street.
