CALVERLEY PARK CRESCENT
Nos 1 to 17 (consec)
TQ 5839 SE 7/80 24.11.66
This crescent was originally called Calverley Promenade. It was built in 1828-1835 and was designed as shops with lodging houses above, but they later became houses. No 1 was the bath-house, and in the centre house was a reading room with a billiard room over. Decimus Burton Architect. Built of local Tunbridge Wells stone. The ground floor of the garden front is stuccoed. 3 storeys and basement cornice and parapet. 2 sashes to each with most glazing bars intact. French windows on the 1st floor. On the 1st floor is a continuous stuccoed balcony supported on a slender iron colonnade based on a raised platform with an iron railing above the colonnade. The end houses (Nos 1 and 17) and the 3 centre houses (Nos 8,9 and 10) project slightly and have a cornice below the top floor. The end houses also have curved bays at the sides.
Nos 1 to 17 (consec) form a group.
