There is an old photograph on Flickr that could be showing 34 Colebrook Street in 1938 - quite a different street scene from today's. See: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rich701/10680045663/

The incline, or ramp as it was known, from the East Limekiln up to the flat area by Kings Cottage, has now fallen away, but was always called 'The Machine" by the villagers. It consisted of a capstan with wooden bars coming out of the centre that were shaped to [...]

Perhaps this example was the architects way of reinforcing the Venetian Gothic building design.
