and attached walls
A terrace of 3 houses, formerly part of the barracks of the
West Suffolk Militia Regiment. 1857/8. By RM Phipson in
partnership with G Morgan. In dark red brick with blue headers
and lighter red brick dressings. Hipped slate roof with a wide
eaves soffit. Elizabethan style, and in similar, but plainer,
style to Nos 28 to 33 King's Road (qv).
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 15 window range, arranged 3:2:3:2:2:3,
all single-light casements with horizontal glazing-bars in
slightly pointed brick surrounds with stone sills. High
internal sawtooth chimney-stacks each have a row of tall
terracotta pots. Rear has 3 paired ground and first-floor
windows to each house.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
Low red brick boundary walls along the frontage have stone
copings and higher dividing pillars with conical stone caps.
HISTORY: the 1853 Militia Act required each county to provide
NCO accommodation and a secure store for arms. These houses
may be the former. An unusual design, which forms part of a
group with the adjoining Nos 28-33 (qv).
