Appraisal

A late nineteenth-century terrace of red brick houses, which are retained as single occupancy and are enlivened by decorative yellow brick detailing and embellished doorcases. Despite some loss of historic detailing and fabric, including the widespread insertion of replacement uPVC windows and artificial slate roofs, the overall character remains largely intact. Characteristic of late nineteenth-century urban domestic architecture, the terrace makes a contribution to the townscape, further diversifying the character of the area.
