6/61 Nos. 1 to 20
and Nos. 21 to 38
Two terraces of colliery housing, c.1875 for the Wearside Iron and Coal Company.
Tooled squared sandstone fronts with coursed rubble returns and rears. Welsh
slate roofs with dark-red brick chimney stacks. North terrace (Nos. 1 to 20)
on level site; south terrace (Nos. 21 to 38) is stepped down slightly-sloping
site. 2 storeys. Flush tooled quoins at ends of each terrace. Each house
one bay with doorways alternately to right and left of ground-floor windows.
Mainly replaced 6-panel doors with overlights under flush lintels. No. 1
retains original 4-panel door with 3-pane overlight. Windows have flush
lintels and projecting sills: mainly late C20 12-pane casements but several
houses retain 12- and 16-pane sashes. Moderately-pitched hipped roofs:
continuous ridge on north terrace; ridge of south terrace is stepped down.
Stepped transverse ridge stacks with oversailing top courses. One-storey,
2-bay lean-to addition with horizontal-sliding sashes on right return of
No. 1. Rear additions are not of special interest.
A late, though relatively unaltered pair of terraces still early C19 in style.
Despite replaced doors and refenestration all the original openings remain.
