Row of three houses. 1904 by Ernest Newton for Richard Biddulph Martin.
Coursed limestone rubble with ashlar dressings and plain tiled roof with
gable-end parapets and ball finials to south front and hipped at rear.
Large ashlar stacks with moulded capping, two to main ridge and at ends
of main range. H-plan; main four-bay range aligned east/west with two-
bay west cross-wing and three-bay east cross-wing. Single storey and attic
with half-dormers and string course at attic storey level which is stepped
above doorways. South front elevation: windows are mainly of three lights
with chamfered mullions and leaded casements. Central part has two ground
floor windows, two gabled half-dormers with weatherboarded gables and 3-light
leaded casements and beneath eaves to left of each dormer is a rectangular
stair light. Beneath each stairlight is a square-headed archway into a small
lobby with a half-glazed door. There is a window on both storeys in the cross-
wing gable ends; the attic storey windows have hoodmoulds. Beneath the string
of the east cross-wing gable end is inscribed "DORMAY COTTAGES/ AD 1904". The
east side of the building facing the road has a ground floor window, a central
gabled half-dormer and rectangular lights on both floors; beneath the central
half-dormer is the entrance to No 54. To the rear of the central range are three
gabled wings and to the rear of the cross-wings are lean-to service rooms with
catslide roofs. The building appears to have been little altered since it was
built. (Newton, W G: The Life and Works of Ernest Newton, London, 1925).
