TQ3378 : 20-54 Surrey Square

taken 5 years ago, near to Bermondsey, Southwark, Great Britain

20-54 Surrey Square
20-54 Surrey Square
A magnificent Georgian terrace by Michael Searles, 1793-94, for the Rolls Estate. It was more impressive until Victorian philistines pulled down almost half of it for a school, leaving the central pediment decidedly off-centre. Each house is of three bays in three storeys and has a simple doorcase (TQ3378 : Detail of 50 Surrey Square, TQ3378 : Detail of 52 Surrey Square). There is no skimping here - there are three openings on each storey following Palladio's dictum of void upon void, solid upon solid. The aforementioned centre is treated more grandly (TQ3378 : 44-48 Surrey Square). Grade II listed.
The whole terrace stands behind a contemporary raised pavement. Grade II listed.
