REASONS FOR DESIGNATION DESCISION
28-30 Church Street is designated at Grade II for the following principle reasons:
* The cottages retain much of the external decorative detail and are therefore a good example of the high Victorian gothic style.
* the high level of survival of architectural and decorative detail and the historical interest ensures 28-30 Church Street meet the criteria for listing buildings of this type and date.
