SD5292 : Georgian houses, Thorney Hill, Kendal

taken 18 years ago, near to Kendal, Cumbria, England

Georgian houses, Thorney Hill, Kendal
Georgian houses, Thorney Hill, Kendal
These houses were built c. 1823, probably by Francis and George Webster. They are faced by ashlar stone, ie with a smooth finish, except for the end one which is faced with painted stucco. From the left, No.7 has an eaves band just under the roof line, and the first floor window sill extends all the way along the front, except where broken by the French window and bay window. Is the latter a later addition? The dormer windows certainly are. No.6 was built for Nathaniel Bateman. It also has a first-floor sill, and has a door at each end. One of these might be to a through passage or to cellar steps. No.5 is similar, but only two windows wide. No.4 was built by George Webster for himself. The stucco work includes panelled pilasters, first-floor sill band and eaves band.
