TQ 1656 SW (north side)

7.9.51 Nos. 28, 30, 32 and 34,
with associated raised garden
wall, steps and railings


Terrace of 4 houses, now mostly school and office. Early to mid C19. Stock
brick in Flemish bond (basement, sides and rear of flint with brick quoins), slate
roof. Rectangular plan, each house single-fronted. Three storeys over a high
service basement, 2+2+2+2 bays divided by narrow channels (for downspouts);
symmetrical, the doorways of Nos.30 and 32 coupled in the centre and the
doorways of Nos.28 and 34 at the outer ends; all the openings at ground floor
are round-headed with intersecting glazing bars and margin panes, and have
gauged brick heads: the doorways have set-in fluted columns, panelled doors, and
fanlights, and the sashed windows are recessed. The upper floors have sashed
windows of 12 and 9 panes respectively with gauged brick heads and raised sills.
The basements have large segmental-headed 16-pane sashed windows and doors
under the bridges. Hipped roof (eaves of No.28 now projecting), two chimney
stacks on the ridge each with 2 sets of 8 chimney pots. (A 2-storey addition to
the right-hand side of No.28 is not included in the item.) The rear, of knapped
flint with brick dressings, has segmental-headed sashed windows mostly of 12 and
9 panes, and there is a modern single-storey flat-roofed extension to No.30.
The raised front garden has a retaining wall of flint on which are mounted cast-
iron spear railings with urn finials to the standards, and in the centre a common
gateway to Nos.30 and 32 which has ramped double gates and a scrolled
wrought-iron over-throw with a circular lamp-holder, and steps up to the houses
protected by similar railings; at the left end a very long flight of steps to No.34
has restored railings.
The item is a good example of early C19 middle class town housing.
