THE HIGHWAY E1

(St Paul's Terrace)
TQ 3580 23/2
II GV

2.
C1820 small stepped terrace of 2 storey one bay houses built of stock brick, giving
onto a courtyard below east retaining wall of St Paul's Shadwell churchyard. Stepped
plinths and first floor stone sill bands; plain stepped parapet copings. Ground
floor windows 2 light wood casement each of 3 horizontal panes with thin glazing bars,
flat gauged brick arches. First floor windows similar but slightly narrower and
contained in semi-circular arched panels. Doorway are set in arched openings,
pilastered reveals, moulded doorheads and plain fanlights. Doors of 4 moulded panels.
Stone flagged path in front. A good example of a small scale early C19 artisan's
dwelling. Of some architectural merit with its arcading and gauged brick window heads,
the terrace's value is further increased by its immediate proximity to the listed
St Paul's Church. It also has particular sociological interest, being situated on
the Highway, formerly the Ratcliff Highway, which during the century became one of
the most notoriously dangerous overcrowded and criminal areas in London.
