Listing Text


1685-1/6/49 (South side)
22/12/53 Nos.10, 12 AND 14


Row of 3 houses, originally part of a row of 5. Mid C18,
altered C19. Sandstone ashlar facade with ashlar dressings,
coursed rubble to the rear. Slate roofs and brick chimney
stacks on the party walls.
2 storeys with cellars and attics, and 10 bays with chamfered
quoins at the right, a first-floor sill band, and a moulded
eaves cornice. Each house is of double-depth plan with various
rear extensions, and each is of 3 bays, except No.10 which has
a fourth bay over a wide waggon entrance, whose stone lintel
is carved to appear as a flat arch. All the openings have
moulded architraves. The windows on the ground floor are
sashed without glazing bars, and those above have 8-pane
sashes. Beneath each ground-floor window is a low cellar
opening some shuttered, some blocked. The doorways have
recessed panelled doors; the one to No.10 (next to the waggon
entrance) is of 6 panels and has an overlight with diamond
glazing bars and is flanked by reeded pilasters which suggest
an early C19 date; those to Nos 12 & 14 (side by side in bays
3 & 4) have 9-panel doors with integral overlights. Each house
has a low hipped attic dormer, that to No.14 of double width,
with small-paned horizontal sliding sashes. The rear of No.14
is of 3 storeys.
