Nos 86 to 144 (even)
TL 2232 9/126-152
1911 by Bennett and Bidwell. Grouped workmen's cottages in 7 blocks of 2,
4 and 6. Built by the Howard Cottage Society Limited. The best of the early
cottage layouts in which Bennett and Bidwell used their standard house types
to particular advantage in an imaginative layout which exploits the picturesque
quality of the street as advocated by Unwin in his then recently published
'Town Planning in Practise'. One and a half storeys. One and two windows
each. Irregular design of facades varied by use of large gabled bays. Tile
roofs with brick ridge stacks. Roughcast walls. Gabled dormer casements
with weather-boarded gables. Two, three and four light mullioned casements
with glazing bars; some first floor gable windows with tile labels extended
to form strings. Recessed doorways with tile labels. The original paintwork
specification of cream walls and windows, and green doors has been maintained
