84 Plymouth Grove, Manchester
84 Plymouth Grove, Manchester
"Of note as one of the largest and most elaborate early C19 houses in inner Manchester", wrote Pevsner. Stuccoed with pilasters and porch. Built c1838-40, possibly to the designs of Richard Lane who employed the same unusual style of capital elsewhere (SJ8596 : Detail of 84 Plymouth Grove, Manchester). It is based on the Tower of the Winds in Athens. Grade II* listed.
A blue plaque records the residency of the novelist Elizabeth Gaskell from 1850 to 1865. The Manchester Historic Buildings Trust has been restoring the building with a view to opening it to the public in 2014, perhaps in the hope that it will become this side of the Pennines's equivalent of the Bronte's house.
