the description shall be amended to read as follows:
Semi-detached houses, c.1881. The design attributed to Norman Shaw, but is more likely to have
been developed by his pupil Ernest Newton. Built by the contractor W H Lascelles of concrete
slabs dyed red on a system he patented in 1875. Tiled roofs and concrete stacks. Each house of-two
storeys and two casement windows, those to outside in gabled projections with jettied upper
storeys and bargeboards. The upper storey, above strong cornice, has raised concrete strips
resembling terracotta between roughcast panels, and decorative gables. Interiors with concrete and
iron joists, with moulded floral ceiling panels to dining room and good joinery throughout.
This pair of houses is important for its technological interest, but is of architectural quality also.

projections with jettied upper storeys and ornamental bargeboards. The upper storey,
above strong cornice is parallel to imitate panelling. Tiled roof. Over the through
sitting room are concrete and iron joists and dining room has moulded floral ceiling
panels. Godd joinery. Mainly listed for the technological interest. Nos 237-9
