(Morden Terrace)
GV II
Terrace of 9 houses. Second quarter of C19. Brick, part
rendered, the ground floor stuccoed throughout. Welsh slate
roofs. All houses have rear wings (with end stacks); ridge
stacks to main range. 2 storeys. Front: designed as a set
piece; symmetrical 4:1:4, the centre house standing forward under
a pedimented gable with a flowing trefoil window to gable wall,
and the name of the terrace contained within 2 moulded string
courses to either side. All houses with 2 1st floor windows
under flat arches, plate-glass sashes with margin panes set in
reveals. Coped parapet with cornice band. Projecting moulded
1st floor cornice; ground floor of each house with 3 round-headed
arches linked by moulded impost band, 2 with hornless sashes (the
upper round-headed) with margin panes, the 3rd with fielded panel

create a continuous rhythm along the entire front. The row is

cornice band).
