No 1 Peckitt St: No.1 Peckitt Street is a mid-late 19th century brick three-storey townhouse that historically formed a residential terrace with Nos.2-7 Peckitt Street. It forms the entrance to Peckitt Street. There is an entrance door centrally placed in the three bays. This is a plain pilaster doorcase with
flat pediment set on console brackets decorated with a classical motif. The windows are six-oversix
vertical timber sashes with flat brick lintels. The roof is laid to slate over a mid-late 19th century
eaves moulded cornice and dentilation. There is a brick chimney with multiple pots. The principal
feature on the rear elevation is the tall round headed window lighting the original stairs.
Below this is a blocked opening at ground floor level. There are two modern windows lighting first
and second floor level WCs respectively. There is a modern single storey brick store in the rear yard.
No.1 Peckitt Street now includes the late 19th century former No.6 Tower Street. This
is also a brick three bay former townhouse with slate covered roof and brick chimney with multiple
pots. It also has a dentilation and moulded cornice. The windows here are two over two vertical
sashes with sash horns, although these may have replaced earlier windows with glazing bars. This
has a three bay frontage that curves at the corner of Tower Street and Peckitt Street and an entrance
at Tower Street. The pedimented doorcase has plain pilasters and a moulded canted pediment with
dentilation and canted hood. Above this is a rendered masonry band, that continues at a slightly
lower level from No.1 Peckitt Street and the window above this is a projecting canted window, again
with a canted cornice with dentilation. Today No.6 Tower Street has been integrated into No.1 Peckitt Street as reflected in the postal address and internal arrangement (Heritage Statement 2017).
