Listing Text

SO 60 SW
(north side)
7/105 Nos 1-9 (inclusive)
Cookson Terrace
- II
Terrace of dwellings and hotel, now all local authority dwellings. Dated 1858
on hopper-head. Snecked sandstone, welsh slate roof, 8 very deep and narrow
stacks and 2 smaller end stacks. A formal composition with central two bays
at three storeys plus basement, flanked each side by six bays at two storeys
and basement plus two-bay units the same; the basements approached at the back
and facilitated by fall in ground level. The end and centre 2-gabled units
step forward cl.5 metres from flanking 6-windowed wings in which first floor
windows are set to flush gablets, all gables with verges brought forward on
wood brackets, and gutter carried straight across in wing sections. Total
of 18 windows, all sashes with horizontal bar (but Nos 1 and 5 with 4 pane
sashes at first floor) in flat segmental pointed arches with flush voussoirs;
9 plank doors with plain transom light over, in arches as windows, and under
steep pointed slated gable porches on wood brackets. Originally built as hotel
in centre unit, and houses for railway employees of the Severn and Wye Railway.
The terrace, in excellent condition at the time of survey (August 1983) is
not only a striking architectural concept, but is also a significant reminder
of Lydney's earlier history.
