doorcases in the centre of a 3-bay return elevation. Inner
dwellings have narrower plan, with doorway and single window
on ground floor. Rusticated ground floor, with 4-panelled
doors with overlights in stressed architraves. Upper windows
have architraves with stressed entablatures carried on console
brackets. 12-pane sashes renewed to ground floor, and
round-arched windows in outer and central dwellings. Central
pair further stressed with doors in Ionic entrance porches.
Cornice with urn and scroll decoration at each end, part now
missing. Gable and axial stacks. The row is one of three
ranges built as a single development and forming part of the
original development of Claughton, laid out by Reed for Sir
William Jackson in the early 1840's.
