SY67SE GROVE ROAD, Grove 969-1/1/139 (East side) Wash houses and connecting boundary wall to rear of Alma Terrace

GV II

Five former wash houses, now stores, linked by continuous rear boundary wall. Probably 1854 (date of Terrace (qv)). Good dressed stone, slate roofs. Each unit has small single room with pent roof to raised rear parapet, and on plain stone eaves band. Each unit has a large 12-pane sash to deep stone cill, and, to far right, a C19 panelled door; back left is large stone stack in 2 stages with heavy capping. Interior retains copper boiler in brick sub-structure, stone floor. Boundary wall between units c 0.5m lower than rear parapets. These outbuildings are unusually grand, and are a reminder of the C19 social scene. They have been well restored with the houses to which they belong.
