Laid out, with St John Street, as a unified terrace-type scheme in 1828-37
on the site of the ancient palace of Beaumont. 5-storeyed Bath stone fronts
on brick, with cellars, a moulded cornice and a small parapet. Some have
a mansard roof to an attic floor. There are 2 to 3 sash windows with glazing
bars in each floor and most have iron balconies at the 1st floor while some
(eg Nos 34 and 35) have good verandah balconies. The doorways, have semi-circular
heads and some, mostly on the South side have stone door frames with engaged
columns and split pediments. The Playhouse (on site of Nos 8, 9 and 10)
was built in 1938 in harmony with the rest in Clipsham ashlar. The interiors
show that the fireplaces are placed at the sidewalls, the central chimney-stack
having disappeared. For plan of No 15 (a typical house), see Antiq Jnl XXVII
(1947), p 132 and Fig 8 G. Playhouse altered 1964.
