Nos.14, 15 and 16 and
Screen wall linking with
Nos. 17 and 18
Terrace of three houses and attached screen wall built by the former Loddon Rural District Council, 1951, architects Tayler and Green. Two storeys, brick, red on Nos 14 and 15, yellow-grey on No 16, which has a red brick Flemish bond gable end with black headers with date `1956' in yellow brick. Red brick screen wall links to Nos 17 and 18. Orange pantiled roof plain wooden bargeboards, 3 brick chimneystacks with pitched concrete copings and clay pots. Rainwater pipes canted down from eaves gutters without swan-necks. Metal casement windows, some now replaced with upvc, 1 three-light and 1 two-light at first floor; ground floor has twin arched openings - 1 with full length casement window, the other with projecting porch with light steel supports and curved head. Door at right gives through access to garden. Projecting concrete party wall closers define intermediate house frontages. This block faces east to village green, and splayed siting effectively complements the earlier bungalows opposite, with the terrace, Nos 11 and 12 and 13 (qv) forming a visual stop to views southwards. At the south end of the block is an attached run of single storey garages. Together with Nos 11, 12 and 13, and Nos 17 and 18 these formed the second phase of village housing at Bergh Apton. The completed scheme received a Civic Trust Award in 1957 and a Housing Medal in 1961. The scheme is a fine example of these architects' work, exemplary as a sensitive and self-contained extension to an existing community, which uses its woodland setting to great advantage to create a new `village green'.
