Full Description

Houses, Nos. 15 (odd), 13-91 (odd), 270 (even), of two storeys, were built in the second quarter of the 19th century. Two occupied but newly erected houses were for sale there in YG 30/10/1847.

The houses are generally uniform in design, but some have basements and there are variations in the treatment of the eaves cornices. The simple doorcases have pilaster jambs and rectangular fanlights. Nos. 15 and 1391 have small front gardens enclosed by dwarf brick walls and iron railings; some have gates hung to moulded circular standards, others to flat scrolled and foliated standards, all in cast iron. Inside, the staircase usually occupies the back part of the entrance passage. Nos. 168 and 70 demolished.
