Listing Text


873-1/20/407 (South side)
18/06/70 Nos.14-24 (Consecutive)


11 houses, part of terrace. Early to mid C19. Flemish bond
brickwork, some painted, some rendered, slate roofs. Brick
fronts remain to Nos 14, 15, 18, 21 & 22, painted to Nos 16,
19 & 20.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, each house 1-window, a sash in plain
reveals above a bold canted oriel, with a sash in reveals, and
a doorway with flush stone elliptical head above a shallow
fanlight at ground floor. Second-floor sashes generally
12-pane, but 16-pane to Nos 21, 22 and 23, and 4-pane to Nos
14 & 16. The oriels have plain sashes, except Nos 20-24, with
glazing bars, and at ground floor mainly 4-pane, but 12-pane
to Nos 21-24. No.14, at the far right-hand end, has a larger
6-pane former shop window, and also returns in 2 bays to
Commercial Road, in similar detail, including 2 oriels. Doors
have been renewed, except for Nos 14, 21 & 24, which have the
6-panelled originals. A slight plinth, a mid plat band, and a
second floor sill band, all of these in stone, and each
property has a party-wall ridge stack, but the first unit has
2 larger brick stacks, below the ridge.
The rear of each house has a sash, some with bars, at second
floor, plus a smaller light, and a sash at ground and first
floors, with a small 2-storey gabled wing to the right.
The terrace was built in at least 3 stages, with a break
between Nos 20 & 21, and a difference in total roof span, and
the corner unit to Commercial Road has a slightly higher
INTERIOR not inspected.
Although some modifications have been made, principally in
windows and doors, the terrace remains a good example of local
vernacular, following the type established in the Esplanade
and streets immediately adjacent. It is also complemented by
remaining properties on the opposite side of the street. With
the parallel Bath Street, it was a consistent piece of
speculative development in the early part of the C19.
