Terrace of 9 houses with attached front walls and railings; nos 1 and 2 now one;

tions. Yellow brick in stretcher bond, mostly stuccoed or painted. Roofs of
Welsh slate or C20 tile. Red brick stacks. The houses are set in handed pairs
with no 9 on its own. All are of 3 storeys with basement and attic; 2 bays.
Each has steps down to basement door (C20) and small-pane sash window. Ground
floors, of rusticated stucco, have paired C20 doors with overlights in archi-
traves with pilasters, friezes, cornices and swept blocking courses; and large
segmental-arched windows with rusticated voussoirs and tripartite sashes.
4-pane sashesto upper floors in eaved and shouldered architraves with bracketed
sills, more elaborate and with cornices and pediments to 1st floor. The pairs
alternately have a dentilled cornice with blocking course, or a parapet. Flat-
roofed dormers with C20 windows. Ridge stacks between pairs. No 8 has mid-late
C20 windows. No 4 has mid-late C20 shutters. No 9 is slightly different,
having a segmental-arched voussoired doorway with a narrow sash above on each
floor, and on right a 2-storey canted bay window with frieze and cornice. To
front of each house is a low, stuccoed, brick wall with coping and some square
piers; original cast-iron gates and railings with arrow-finialled bars survive
to nos 1-3, 6-7, and in part to no 9 (which has top of wall and gate piers
rebuilt).
