7/29 Eight detached houses forming the children's homes at the Harris Orphanage (formerly listed with "The Harris Children's Home") 15.1.1985 GV II

Eight houses built in rows of 4 north and south of a green, as "village homes" for the Harris Orphanage, 1885-88, by Benjamin Sykes of Garlick, Park, and Sykes, for trustees of E.R. Harris. Accrington red brick with bands and dressings of sandstone, slate roofs with red ridging tiles. Slightly varied in plan and form, but all like conventional suburban middle class semi-detached houses of the period, in Vernacular Revival style, with decorated gables (some of applied timber, others of diaper and similar patterns of projecting headers), large wooden mullion and transom windows, some in canted bays, some in hipped gableted dormers (and some with altered glazing), and tall Tudor-style chimneys. Not the first, but nevertheless a good and fairly early example of the family-unit system for such institutions, in sharp contrast to the classification system of the New Poor Law, applied less than 20 years earlier at the Preston Union Workhouse, Watling Street Road (q.v.).
