Listing Text


973/2/10013 Nos. 161-165 (Consecutive)
Orchard Croft


Crescent of houses. 1952-53. Frederick Gibberd architect (Harlow Design Group). Brown brick; rendering to ground floor; projecting concrete surrounds to first floor windows. Low pitched concrete pantiled roofs behind parapets. 3-storey houses with car-ports and glazed entrances to groU11d floor. Windows partly replaced in UPVC and partly original painted metal frames. Chinmey stacks along ridge line. With Nos 3-12 (consec) forms crescent of houses facing south to The Stow playing field. The overall sweep of this terrace is impressive and it acts as a prelude to The Stow neighbourhood shopping centre (which is not included in listing). It is Gibberd's most successful attempt at his favourite three-storey housing and a conscious revival of the C 18 and early C 19 crescent.
