SUNDERLAND

NZ3858 JAMES ARMITAGE STREET, Southwick
920-1/8/287 (East side)
10/11/78 Nos.65-95 (Odd)
(Formerly Listed as:
JAMES ARMITAGE STREET
(West side)
Nos.63-95 (Odd))

GV II

Terrace of 15 cottages. No.95 at left end, facing Fulwell
Road, is dated 1874; main terrace perhaps slightly earlier.
Brick, some painted and No.91 pebble-dash rendered, with
painted ashlar dressings and roofs originally Welsh slate but
some renewed in synthetic composition slates.
EXTERIOR: one storey, one window except for Nos 85 and 89-93,
2 windows and No.95, with 4 windows. No.95 is symmetrical with
quoins to projecting gabled end bays; central renewed door in
architrave with MILL VIEW COTTAGE inscribed in stone plaque
above cornice; flat stone lintels and projecting stone sills
to flanking renewed sashes; pointed arched heads to renewed
end windows with date 18 and 74 in quatrefoil panels in gable
peaks; plain renewed bargeboards; eaves gutter brackets
between gables. Nos 91 and 93 to right share a gabled entrance
projection with pointed windows and quatrefoil to front, wedge
stone lintels to doors in returns and to 2 windows with
projecting stone sills in each cottage front. Other houses
have renewed doors under gauged brick round-headed arches,
paired between single window houses and central in others, and
segment headed window openings under flat brick arches; brick
eaves gutter brackets and cornice. Low pitched roofs with
transverse ridge chimneys.
These houses have sociological as well as architectural
interest, representing the Sunderland single-storey cottage
which was the preferred house-type for C19 working class
housing in the town. In similar streets elsewhere in the
Durham Coalfield the larger houses would be for colliery
officials.
