SZ 0378 3M 5/73 26.6.52
Built 1835. A terrace of shops, the ones at each end projecting slightly. Originally
rendered, but the rendering has recently been stripped from the 2 end buildings,
exposing Purbeck stone walls with brick window surrounds. Slate roofs. Cast iron
balconies to first floor. Double-hung sash windows to first and second floors. No 11,
now the White House Inn, has large modern small-paned windows to ground floor. Nos 11a
and 13, now a shop, were the retirement home of John Mowlem - later the "Queen's"
Restaurant. This has a C19 shop front. Above the roof is a projecting battlemented
tower, formerly John Mowlem's observatory. Below this are 3 inserted dormers. No 15
has a modern shop front and a large modern inserted dormer in the attic. No 17 has a
C19 shop front with projecting canted bays each side of a central door, and a dormer
in the attic. No 17a, at the rear of No 17, faces Cliff Place and was probably
originally a separate cottage, probably C18. Two storeys. Purbeck Stone walls and
roof. Modern windows and door. Stone boundary wall linking this building to Nos 1 and
2 Cliff Place - this appears to be the site of a demolished cottage. RCHM Monument 32.
