The Hoe
LOCKYER STREET (west side)
Nos.14 AND 15 Lockyer Court

(Formerly Listed as: LOCKYER STREET, Plymouth Nos.14 AND 15 Prince of Wales Hospital)


Orphanage, later hospital; two houses at end of planned terrace, the others largely rebuilt following damage during the Blitz. Early-mid C19 with C20 extension in Neo-Classical style. Stucco with stucco detail; roof behind parapets with moulded entablature, the parapet of No.15 (right) is taller; attic windows. Double-depth plan extended later to rear.

EXTERIOR: three storeys plus attic over basement, now with the only entrances; three:three-window range, No.15 with giant pilasters flanking upper-floor bays. Late C19 or C20 horned sashes, those to ground floor in round-arched openings. Stucco detail includes: channelled rustication to ground floor with impost string and voussoirs and string above and balustraded balcony with moulded cornice on square basement structure to far right. Right-hand two-storey return elevation is C20 in neo-classical style with three:two:three bays with balustraded parapet and two open pediments over paired giant Ionic pilasters; mostly blind openings.

INTERIOR: not inspected but may retain original features of interest.

Included for group value as part of an important planned group of terraces and villas by Foulston and his pupil Wightwick on the Hoe, a scheme which placed Plymouth in the forefront of town planning in the early/mid C19.
