built out with shop fronts. Designed by Amon Wilds about 1830
but left unfinished; No.7 added soon after, first floor oriels
added when ground floor obscured by shop fronts c1880, some
alterations, particularly to shopfronts, mid-late C20.
Render over brick, roofs concealed behind parapet. Greek
Revival style.
Plan: unfinished terrace, eastern 4 bays break forward
slightly and are ornamented at eaves level, but there is no
repeat at the western end; the next 8 bays west give no
indication at eaves level as to the intended centre of the
range, while the final 2 western bays are unornamented; the
ground floor has been obscured by shopfronts.
4 storeys, 4:10 bays, 4 left with shallow pediment to centre 2
bays, flanked by volute and anthemion ornamentation to parapet
of slightly lower outer bays with arch head windows, 2
square-headed windows with linked entablature to centre,
similar window openings to rest of third floor set between
pilasters, 9- and 6-pane sash windows, strongly moulded
cornice with garlands to frieze, giant pilasters carry
entablature with enclosed palmettes to capitals, 9-pane sash
windows except to second and third bays left where there are
narrow 6-pane windows between paired pilasters without
capitals; first floor with enclosed shell heads above 12-pane
sash windows, cast-iron balconies, replaced in second, third,
sixth, seventh, tenth and eleventh bays by 3-light oriels
carried on cast iron brackets, blind parapet; below are
inserted windows not visible at street level because of the
projecting shopfronts. The end-two-bays right have the same
sash windows, but slightly larger, and the facade is
unadorned.

fluted pilasters with cavetto moulded frieze and pediment
surmounted by ball finial; Nos 2 & 3 have been gutted.
