740-1/43/391 (South side)
Nos.15-39 (Odd)

GV II

Planned terrace of houses. Mid C19. Stucco with stucco detail;
dry slate or asbestos slate roofs behind parapet with moulded
cornice; each house with segmental-headed roof dormer;
stuccoed end stacks. Double-depth plan, each house with 1 room
at the front and entrance porch fronting entrance hall on its
right.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys plus attics; each house a 3-window range
with blind central window. Most window openings have their
original hornless sashes, most with glazing bars. Stucco
detail includes: channelled rustication to ground floor except
where each house has a single window in a recessed
segmental-arched panel; moulded mid-floor cornice breaking
forward over porch entablature and round-arched 1st-floor
windows with moulded hoods on impost cornices. Porches have
pilaster cornices and stepped entablature and C20 outer doors
fronting possible original panelled inner doors.
INTERIOR: not inspected but likely to be of interest.
In a city which lost so many windows during the Blitz, this
terrace is remarkable in having so many original sashes. One
of a good group of terraces, shown on the 1867 map.
