TIVERTON

SS9512 CHURCH STREET, Tiverton
848-1/6/169 (West side)
Nos.2-10 (Even)

GV II

Uniform terrace of 5 houses extending from Heathcoat Square to
Wellbrook Street, forming part of the same block as No.14
Wellbrook Street (qv). Probably built in 1875-6, following the
pattern of the St Paul Street houses of the late 1850s.
MATERIALS: pinkish-yellow brick laid in Flemish bond with low,
chamfered plinth of squared stone blocks; all openings, except
for a round-arched passage entrance at the right-hand end of
No.6, have flat gauged arches. Windows have cast-iron sills.
Slated roofs. Chimneys on the party-walls, of same brick as
the fronts, the caps with projecting courses forming
entablatures; all have been heightened in red brick. Good
spiked chimneypots.
PLAN: double-fronted, with variations at the 2 corner houses
(Nos 2 & 10), and at No.6, which has the open passage running
through it; the doorway to No.2 faces the entrance to
Heathcoat Square.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. 3-window fronts with centre doorway; No.2
also has a fourth window facing Church Street, while at
Nos 6 & 10 the doorway is in the left-hand bay, No.10 having
its third window round the corner in Wellbrook Street.
Doorways have deep, wood-panelled reveals and soffits with
incised Greek decoration; 3-paned fanlights. 4-panelled doors,
the 2 lower panels flush, with cast-iron knockers and
letterboxes: Nos 8 & 10 have been altered and have C20 flush
wooden doors. Round-arched passage-way has good iron gate at
rear; hinges for a similar-sized gate remain at the front. All
windows have 8-paned sashes.
The corners of the block are rounded and recessed, the end bay
to the right (part of No.2) also being slightly splayed.
Deeply-projecting, moulded eaves-cornice. Rainwater pipes are
recessed into the brickwork.
Stone plinth contains a series of patterned, cast-iron
ventilator-grilles, and there is a similar, larger grille at
the right-hand end of the ground storey at No.2.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORY: these were Heathcoat-built houses, closely similar to
the Heathcoat houses at Nos 1-7 (odd) and 12-24 (even) Church
Street. They are sketched in as a later addition on
Heathcoat's estate atlas of 1844 and seem likely to have been
the `6 cottages Church Street and Wellbrook' built for Sir
John Heathcoat-Amory in 1875-6, at the same time as the
Heathcoat Hall.
These form part of a well-preserved group of artisan housing
in Church Street, built for the workers at the Heathcoat
family's silk and lace mills. Of interest for their external
completeness as part of a planned group, including Anglican
church, institute and school.
