No 30
Nos 32 to 60(even)(Peel Square)
SE 1533 34/800 8.3.83 (formerly listed as Nos 30 to
60(even)(Peel Square)

Dated 1860, not a square but a shallow half H plan terrace of town houses with a
carriage drive in front. A rear contemporary development to Hallfield Road,
adjacent, Apsley Crescent and the earlier Hanover and Southfield Squares. An
example of more formal urban planning in Bradford at this date. Possibly an
Andrews and Delauney design. The main part of the terrace, behind the drive,
returns on sharp concave curve to the "wings" formed by Nos 30 to 34 and 56 to 60.
Two storeys, sandstone "brick" with ashlar dressings, slightly Italianate detailing.
Plinth, plat band, ashlar frieze and eaves cornice. Welsh slate roof, hipped over
"wings". Corniced chimneys. Nos 42 to 48 to centre of main range break forward
slightly with further shallow break containing Nos 44 and 46. Pediment over and
flanking sections of blocking course. Carved wreath in pediment with crown, name
and date. Two bay fronts. Shallow revealed sash windows, the reveals carried
down below sills, to plat band and plinth respectively, with apron effect. The
2 central windows above the paired doorways of Nos 44 and 46 are set in raised
ashlar panels with console brackets to cornices over the entrances, some retaining
doors of 4 moulded panels, the upper ones round headed, have reeded doorheads carried
out over imposts; radial glazed fanlights, archivolt arches with keystones; the
whole contained by flanking strips with consoles rising to broken entablatures and
cornices over. The doorways of Nos 34 and 56 follow the sharp concave curve of the
return to the "wings". The end houses have 3 window symmetrical fronts to road,
the outer window bays breaking forward slightly. Similar design to rest of terrace.
