the description shall be amended to read as follows:

Semi-detached houses, c.1881. The design attributed to Norman Shaw, but is more likely to have been developed by his pupil Ernest Newton. Built by the contractor W H Lascelles of concrete slabs dyed red on a system he patented in 1875. Tiled roofs and concrete stacks. Each house of-two storeys and two casement windows, those to outside in gabled projections with jettied upper storeys and bargeboards. The upper storey, above strong cornice, has raised concrete strips resembling terracotta between roughcast panels, and decorative gables. Interiors with concrete and iron joists, with moulded floral ceiling panels to dining room and good joinery throughout. This pair of houses is important for its technological interest, but is of architectural quality also.

Built by the contractor W H Lascelles of concrete slabs dyed red on a system he patented in 1875, following the early use of concrete in the 1860s (and earlier in France). Semi-detached pair, each of 2 storeys and 2 casement windows, the outer ones in gabled projections with jettied upper storeys and ornamental bargeboards. The upper storey, above strong cornice is parallel to imitate panelling. Tiled roof. Over the through sitting room are concrete and iron joists and dining room has moulded floral ceiling panels. Godd joinery. Mainly listed for the technological interest. Nos 237-9 are also Shaw-Lascelles concrete houses but of less interest. (A Saint, Richard Norman Shaw).
