941-1/6/279 (South West side)
Nos.67-93 (Odd)
Wellington Terrace

GV II

Terrace of 14 town houses. c.1850; altered. Red brick in
Flemish bond (No.73 now painted), with sandstone dressings and
slate roof. Double-depth plan, each house single-fronted.
Three storeys over basements, a 26-window range, Nos 85 and 87
breaking forwards slightly, with a corner pilaster to the
left, a 1st-floor sill-band (stepped down slightly between Nos
87 and 89), plain frieze and moulded cornice with blocking
course. Each house has a basement area protected by
spear-headed railings with a gate and crossed by a bridge of 4
steps to the right, a basement door beneath the steps and
front door above, the latter with a moulded surround and
cornice on consoles, and a panelled door with overlight; one
window at ground floor with raised sill and wedge lintel, 2
similar windows at 1st floor, most of these windows sashed but
altered glazing at Nos 67, 69, 71, 73, 85 and 87, and one low
window at 2nd floor with raised sill (mostly 6-pane sashes but
some altered). To the right of No.91 is a continuation with 2
windows at ground floor and coupled windows on each floor
above (belonging to No.93, which has the entrance in a later
addition to the right). Chimneys on front slope of roof. Rear:
basements at ground level. INTERIOR: former kitchens and
service rooms in basements. Good example of early Victorian
terraced town houses, facing street which still has original
boulder-cobbled surface and flagged pavements, and forming
group with former Church of St Mark opposite (q.v.).
