969-1/1/139 (East side)
Wash houses and connecting boundary
wall to rear of Alma Terrace


Five former wash houses, now stores, linked by continuous rear
boundary wall. Probably 1854 (date of Terrace (qv)). Good
dressed stone, slate roofs. Each unit has small single room
with pent roof to raised rear parapet, and on plain stone
eaves band. Each unit has a large 12-pane sash to deep stone
cill, and, to far right, a C19 panelled door; back left is
large stone stack in 2 stages with heavy capping. Interior
retains copper boiler in brick sub-structure, stone floor.
Boundary wall between units c 0.5m lower than rear parapets.
These outbuildings are unusually grand, and are a reminder of
the C19 social scene. They have been well restored with the
houses to which they belong.
