Listing Text


698-1/29/164 (East side)
Nos.45, 47, 47A


Pair of small town houses, now shop and cafe. Late C18,
altered and reduced. Brown brick in Flemish bond, with some
sandstone dressings, slate roof. Double-depth plan, each house
single-fronted. Now 2 storeys but formerly 3 storeys, with
basements, 2+2 windows; segmental-headed basement windows,
original steps and railings; doorways to the right, up 3
steps, with moulded architraves and pediments;
segmental-headed windows at ground floor, that to No.47 a
4-pane sash with exposed box (other altered); segmental-headed
16-pane sashed windows with exposed boxes at 1st floor (except
that to the right at No.47 which has altered glazing); all
these windows now furnished with louvred pseudo shutters. Top
2 courses of wall rebuilt. Interior not inspected, but
reported by Manchester Early Dwellings Research Group to be
without internal communication to basements, which were
therefore either workshops or cellar dwellings. Very rare
survival of this type.
