NZ3858 JAMES ARMITAGE STREET, Southwick 920-1/8/287 (East side) 10/11/78 Nos.65-95 (Odd) (Formerly Listed as: JAMES ARMITAGE STREET (West side) Nos.63-95 (Odd))


Terrace of 15 cottages. No.95 at left end, facing Fulwell Road, is dated 1874; main terrace perhaps slightly earlier. Brick, some painted and No.91 pebble-dash rendered, with painted ashlar dressings and roofs originally Welsh slate but some renewed in synthetic composition slates. EXTERIOR: one storey, one window except for Nos 85 and 89-93, 2 windows and No.95, with 4 windows. No.95 is symmetrical with quoins to projecting gabled end bays; central renewed door in architrave with MILL VIEW COTTAGE inscribed in stone plaque above cornice; flat stone lintels and projecting stone sills to flanking renewed sashes; pointed arched heads to renewed end windows with date 18 and 74 in quatrefoil panels in gable peaks; plain renewed bargeboards; eaves gutter brackets between gables. Nos 91 and 93 to right share a gabled entrance projection with pointed windows and quatrefoil to front, wedge stone lintels to doors in returns and to 2 windows with projecting stone sills in each cottage front. Other houses have renewed doors under gauged brick round-headed arches, paired between single window houses and central in others, and segment headed window openings under flat brick arches; brick eaves gutter brackets and cornice. Low pitched roofs with transverse ridge chimneys. These houses have sociological as well as architectural interest, representing the Sunderland single-storey cottage which was the preferred house-type for C19 working class housing in the town. In similar streets elsewhere in the Durham Coalfield the larger houses would be for colliery officials.
