and attached railings

GV II

Terrace of seven houses along west side of Myddelton Square.
1824-1827. By William Chadwell Mylne, Surveyor to the New
River Estate. Yellow stock brick set in Flemish bond with
banded stucco ground-floor and stucco dressings; artificial
slate, others obscured by parapets, brick party-wall stacks.
Side-hall entrance plan. Four storeys with basement; 2 windows
each. Right-hand return wall of 2-window range to no. 67 in
Inglebert Street and left-hand return wall of 2-window range
to no. 73 in River Street. Symmetrical facade with slightly
projecting end houses. Steps rise to round or
elliptical-arched entrance to left (stucco portico side
entrance to no. 67 return in Inglebert Street): architraved
doorway with 3/4 fluted column jambs (panelled pilaster jambs
to no. 67) carrying corniced-head, patterned fanlight and
original panelled door. Ground-floor round and
elliptical-arched architraved sashes (margin lights and
coloured glass to no. 70) with panel below. Gauged brick
flat-arched mostly 6/6 and 3/3 sashes to upper floors. 1st
floor stucco sill band beneath full-length sashes set in
arched recesses linked by stucco impost bands and with iron
bracketed coupled cast-iron balconies with bamboo and
anthemion pattern to railings. Extensive rebuilding to upper
floors of nos. 71-73; plain brick parapet with brick string
course and stone coping. Good cast-iron railings with urn and
acorn finials. This is the largest square in the area aside
from Finsbury Square. It is considered by some to be
Islington's best and most important adornment of the New River
Estate, and, stylistically, it is the most cohesive in the
district.
