Stephenson Terrace


Terrace of town houses, with attached front garden walls; now
offices, surgeries, etc. c.1847-51, by George Mould; altered.
Coursed squared sandstone with ashlar dressings (rear of
brick), and slate roof. Double-depth plan, each house
single-fronted (except the 2 at the left end which are
double-fronted), with individual back extensions. Two storeys
over cellars, with attics; a symmetrical 48-bay range, with a
8-bay centre and 4-bay ends which break forwards and have
attic storeys; with quoins, plinth, 1st-floor sill-band, and
plain fieze and moulded cornice carried across as a sill-band
to the attic storeys of the centre and ends, which have
similar cornices with parapets, that in the centre with an
upstand panel lettered "STEPHENSON TERRACE". All the doorways
have porches with Tuscan columns and pilasters, and
entablatures with blocking courses, those in the southern half
mounted on steps, and altered doors with overlights; but
No.102 has the doorway in the left return wall, with an
architrave of Tuscan columns in antis. The windows of the
upper floors are regular with moulded architraves (most of
those in the southern half sashed and most of those to the
north altered), and those in the attic storeys of the centre
and ends very low, with 6-pane sashes; at ground floor Nos 74
and 78 have rectangular bays; Nos 68, 76 and 80, and all those
north of the centre (i.e. 86 to 102) have canted bays. Roof
with some skylights to the 2-storey ranges, and stone chimneys
on the ridge. Front gardens enclosed by attached ramped walls
of the same material, with rounded coping. Rear: narrow
2-storey back extensions and very narrow yards with high back
wall. INTERIOR: the few inspected have 2-room cellars, and
servants' stairs to attics disguised as cupboards.
