Pair of small town houses. c.1830-35, altered. Red brick in
5+1 English garden wall bond (painted cream at No.45), with
some slate-hanging at rear; sandstone dressings and slate
roof. Double-depth plan, each house single-fronted, with back
extensions, and a through lobby in the centre. Two storeys
over cellars, 1+1 bays; with a 1st-floor sill-band, plain
frieze and moulded gutter cornice. The doorways, up 3 and 2
steps to the left and right respectively, have round-headed
architraves with set-in Tuscan quarter columns, plain lintels,
and semicircular fanlights with convex moulded surrounds,
No.44 with a 6-panel door and No.45 with an altered door; and
the lobby doorway in the centre has a board door and wedge
lintel. Each house has one window on each floor, all with
raised sills and wedge lintels, those at No.44 sashed without
glazing bars and those at No.45 with altered glazing; and a
cellar window with wedge lintel (casement with glazing bars at
No.44, blocked at No.45), both protected by gratings. Large
linear multiple-flue common chimney stack at the junction.
Rear: No.45 slate-hung at 1st floor; No.44 recently rebuilt;
narrow individual extensions under mono-pitched roofs, with
privy attached at end of No.45.
INTERIOR: No.44 has entrance hall, front parlour with original
ornamental cast-iron fireplace (lacking hood and grate), back
kitchen, scullery-cum-wash-house in back extension with steps
down to keeping cellar under front room and coal cellar under
doorway; original cast-iron hob grates in both main bedrooms
at 1st floor (both dismantled during grant work, 1988, but
awaiting restoration).
The item is part of a formerly complete set of late Georgian
lower-middle class town houses in this street, and was the
first pair built at this end of this side.
