REASONS FOR DESIGNATION
Nos. 6 and 7 Cliff Street are designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Date: late C18 in origin.
* Craftsmanship: demonstrated particularly by the door surround and fanlight to No.6 and the Flemish bond brickwork.
* Architecture: originally a matched pair of town houses, No.7 displays good quality C19 alterations which contrasts with the more original appearance of No.6.
* Group Value: the buildings have group value with the other listed properties on Cliff Street
