12/12/53 Nos.1-12 (Consecutive)
(Formerly Listed as:
Terrace of 12 houses. c1835 (RCHME). Rendered on brickwork,
but Nos 7-10 not rendered, slate roofs.
PLAN: except for No.1, on a somewhat grander scale, these are
of modest 2-room depth with dogleg stair to the rear, right,
and a small gabled service wing.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, attic and basement, each has a single
flat-roofed dormer with 12-pane sash above two 12-pane sashes
at second floor, and a 2-storey slight bowed oriel with
8:12:8-pane sash and dentil cornices below, left. In No.1 the
oriel rises through 3 floors, breaking the cornice line, and
with a higher parapet, and No.5 also has a 3-storey oriel, but
stopped to the cornice line. Basement windows are 16-pane
sashes. To the right of each, except No.1, is an arched
doorway with plain fanlight over a reeded transom, and 6-panel
doors (No.2 is 2-panel).
A continuous plat band at first- and second-floor levels, a
moulded cornice, blocking course and coped parapet. Spearhead
railings return to the doorways, and a gate opens to stone
steps to the basement areas, except to Nos 11 & 12. There are
11 ridge stacks, doubled in size to Nos 1 & 2.
The return to the left, to Lennox Street, is 4 windows wide,
under a broad flat-topped pediment covering the double roof to
central valley. A central arched sash at 3 levels is flanked
by blind openings, with a further 12-pane sash to the right,
and a continuous cornice below the attic light.
A projecting flat-roofed portico covers the doorway, and has a
large arched sash with radial bars to the S; the approach to
the door is carried on a walkway on square pillars, with a
small basement light set-back below.
The return at the right end, to William Street, has a plain
gable, with one sash at first floor level. The backs, all
rendered, are practically unchanged, in 4 storeys and attic,
with original dormers, 16-pane sashes, and a tall thin 18-pane
sash stair window. Each house retains the small 2-storey
gabled service wing. No.1 also has a bowed oriel at
This is externally practically unaltered, and demonstrates the
continuing high quality of speculative development in Weymouth
at this period.
INTERIOR: No.9 has reeded doorcases to stops. The entrance
gives to a lobby, with an arch to the dogleg stair opposite,
with the first landing flying across the deep sash window. It
has stick balusters and swept mahogany handrail on Doric
newels. No.8 is similar, with the 2 main ground-floor rooms
joined through a wide opening with reeded architraves, but
without doors. There are reeded flat cornices and simple fire
surrounds. The oriel is panelled in the reveals and below the
sill. The original staircases, and many doors with architraves
remain in these houses.
