Terrace of houses. 1852-53 by John Louth Clemence for Sir

Roofs originally of slate, now partly concrete tile. Raised
central block and end pavilions, the latter defined by
rusticated quoins and hipped roofs. 3 storeys and basements.
Each house with a 2-storey canted bay and a porch entrance.
Fenestration originally of horned sashes without glazing bars,
now mostly mid-late C20 casements. Each house with a stack on

housing originally devised in 1846 by J.L. Clemence for Sir
Samuel Morton Peto for the development of Lowestoft as a
fashionable holiday resort, made possible by the building of
the railway by Peto in the 1840's.
