Full Description

No. 44 and No. 1 Mill Lane are two three-storey houses, perhaps originally built as one house with a service wing, of c. 1835–40. It is shown as one building on the 1852 OS map. The main elevation of No. 44 is of four bays with a continuous sill-band to the first floor and a heavy moulded cornice. The entrance has a shallow hood supported on brackets. The first-floor windows have flat pediments supported by similar brackets; those to the ground and second floors and to all floors of No. 1 Mill Lane have segmental cement arches with key blocks and simulated voussoirs. No. 1 Mill Lane has a bold entrance with rounded arch with key block and simple pilastered jambs.

House, No. 46, of three storeys, was built c. 1840. It has a simple entrance with Tuscan pilaster jambs. The windows have segmental arches of cement with key blocks and simulated voussoirs; those on the first floor have a continuous sill-band.

Houses, Nos. 48, 50, are a pair, of three storeys with basements, built c. 1845–50. They have heavy doorcases and angular bay windows to the ground floor and a continuous sill-band to the first-floor windows; the window openings have segmental arches.
