GV II

Formerly known as: Nos.63-69 AND 63A-69A BANK PARADE. Block of "top-and-bottom" or stack houses. Probably early C19, in 2 builds; altered and recently restored. Coursed squared sandstone (roof not visible, but probably slate). PLAN: linear plan, the lower houses single-depth built back-to-earth and facing the River Brun to the east, and the upper houses double-depth and facing an alley (now enclosed) accessed from Bank Parade to the west. EXTERIOR: 2 plus 2 storeys in 2 pairs, with a vertical joint between them. The right-hand pair (numbered 5 and 6 at ground level), with 1+1 windows at 1st floor, have coupled doorways in the centre with chiselled surrounds, a round-headed doorway at the right-hand end with stepped rusticated voussoirs (giving access to a stone staircase to the upper alley), and small rectangular windows with C20 4-pane glazing; the pair above them have a stone-flag balcony carried on cast-iron brackets and protected by cast-iron railings, French windows to this and rectangular windows above. The left-hand pair (numbered 7 and 8 at ground level), with 2+2 windows at 1st floor, break forwards, have unusual decoration including chiselled bands at lintel level of the 1st 3 floors and between the floors of the upper pair of houses a band with panelled ends and rope-work ornament; separated doorways in the centre of the ground floor, and rectangular windows on all floors (with C20 12-pane top-hung casements), all these openings with chiselled surrounds. The right-hand (north) gable wall has a plaque inscribed "The owners of this land has a right to half this wall 1847". INTERIORS not inspected.
