Nos 4 to 12 (even)
SE 6132 SE 5/34 11.12.68


Probably begun soon after April 1793; when James Audus the elder, a
prominent local shipowner, took a lease from the 9th Lord Petre, the Lord
of the Manor of Selby, of the site of the Abbey Gatehouse; which he then
took down in connection with his development of The Crescent, to which
Park Street is clearly the complement. An alternative date is circa 1832,
at which time Park Street became the beginning of the Bawtry Turnpike,
formerly running from New Lane. Brown brick. Pitched slate roof. Two
storeys. Parapet. Continuous first floor sill. Three bays each, sashes
with glazing bars, and rusticated stucco voussoirs. Doors with fielded
panels, panelled reveals and semi-circular fanlights: wooden surrounds
with panelled pilasters, and consoles above impost level to plain
cornices (Nos 6 and 8), modillioned pediments (Nos 4 and 12), and flat
hood on scrolled brackets with drop finials (No 10). No 10 has mid C19
ground floor bay.
