Description

"Built by J Jackson, 1852" (inscription). 2-storey terrace,

stepped to slope. Houses mainly 2-bay with paired

pilastered doorcases (No 1 (nearest W) with pend to W; shop door

and window at E end and 1st floor bipartite); further 2 bays

and paired doorcase to Solway Street (1 door blocked). Stugged red coursers

with polished dressings and architraves; variety of glazing

patterns (original 12-pane, some modern); eaves band;

cavetto cornice; end stacks; slate roofs.

Set behind small gardens (except at E end) with low boundary

walls, gatepiers with pilaster detail. Pilasteral and corniced gatepiers.

Statement of Interest

The inscription is carved on a panel above the paired doors to Nos 11 and 12. The existence of No 10a as a whole house avoided the inclusion of a No 13. Nos 11-13 Church Street (listed separately) flank the terrace and share the pend to W. Cumberland Terrace is an unusually detailed and dignified terrace, evidently providing prestigious homes when built. The predominant original glazing comprised timber sash and case windows with 3 pane upper sashes over 6 pane lower, with slight effect of border glazing.
