The pavement extends up to 10m in front of the crescent, with steps down through basement areas; each house has 3 segmental-arched vaults beneath. The front elevation of the pavement expresses the vaults in triple segmental-arched recesses, wider to the middle, most with later garage openings.

SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached iron railings and stanchions extend the full width of the front wall. A prominent feature of what is reputed to be the longest terrace in Europe, and forming an important part of the view of Clifton from the S. HISTORICAL NOTE: the crescent was begun 1791 by James Lockier, probably to a design of William Paty, work stopped 1793, restarted 1809 and completed 1820.
