Mid to later 18th century; recast and converted by Ian Lindsay & Partners, circa 1970. 2-storey, 4-bay pair of rectangular-plan, symmetrical cottages forming W boundary of close. Harled and limewashed; raised and painted concrete surrounds to openings; projecting cills.
E (LAMB?S COURT) ELEVATION: step to timber boarded doors to ground in central bays; flanking single windows in outer bays; single windows aligned above. Single windows to 1st floor offset to left and right of centre to Nos 2 and 3 respectively.
12-pane timber sash and case windows to all openings; velux rooflights to rear. Machine-made red pantiled roof with grey slate easing course and precast concrete skews. Harled apex stacks to N and S to No 3 and to N to No 2; precast concrete copes and circular cans.
B Group with Nos 1, 4 and 5 Lamb?s Court and Nos 4-8 Wester Close (see separate list entries). Both properties display characteristics typical of the Newhaven overhaul by Ian Lindsay & Partners during the 1970s. Note the harled and limewashed walls, red pantiles, precast concrete skews and painted cement surrounds to openings. Despite harsh detailing and element of standardisation, the practice?s Newhaven work should be acknowledged as a pioneering attempt to conserve and improve an entire fishing village. Substantial in size, with a clear philosophy, it contrasts with more recent restoration attempts and thus, illustrates the differing and developing attitudes towards conservation. Previously listed as Nos 3, 5, 6 and 10 Lamb?s Court.
