Additional Information

The plans are for two houses fronting a site on the eastern side of Firth Street; a covered entry leads into the yard with an existing workshop, belonging to David Lawton. The site extends to the River Colne. Above the arch, between the two houses, the drawing optimistically shows the date 1881. The house to the left of the passage is larger.

The accommodation comprises :

  • Basement - keeping cellar; coals; scullery kitchen; coals; privy; dry ashes
  • Ground - room (house A) / kitchen room (house B)
  • Chamber - four beds (house A) / two beds (house B)

The basement is accessible from the yard, the buildings appear to be of three storeys from the yard but only two from Firth Street.

The adjacent site to the north is in part leased to George Hoyle; that to the south is vacant and belongs to Sir J.W. Ramsden.
