Nos.8 AND 9


Semi-detached houses. 1847-9. Developed, and probably
designed, by James Wagstaffe. Yellow brick set in Flemish bond
with dressings of stucco and roof of slate. Three storeys over
basement, three windows each. Basement stuccoed. The entrance
is up steps in a two-storey, outer bay, slightly set back:
flat-arched entrance with pilaster-jambs, cornice, overlight
and panelled door of original design; no 8 has a flat-arched
window over with architrave; no 9 has a round-arched porch
added in front of the entrance, with all its mouldings now
stripped, and the first floor rebuilt over. On the rest of
each house, flat-arched windows to all floors, those to ground
and first floors with architrave and cornice on consoles,
those to second floor with architraves linked to the bracketed
and moulded eaves cornice; hipped roof, stacks to party walls.
No 9 has single-storey C20 extension, set back.
