filled in); one window at ground floor and 2 above, all with
raised sills and wedge lintels, and all sashed without glazing
bars except those at 1st floor of No.2 which are now top-hung
casements. Nos.1 and 3 each have one chimney each side of
ridge, others now lack chinmneys.
INTERIORS: Nos.1 to 3 have small entrance halls with panelled
arches and moulded plaster modillions, and cellars under front
rooms only, with fireplaces; No.1 has dog-legged staircase
with stick balusters and carved brackets; back yard of No.2
has blocked well (filled in by order of Sanitary Purposes
