53 Westgate Road, NE1

  • Description

    "Late 17th or early 18th C. It was built as a house (but is now offices). It has lost its decorative parapet along the eaves, and acquired a brutal late Victorian door surround [[4503821]] and an awful modern shop front. However, the original facade with stone panels under each window and pilasters at each edge has survived; the chimney stacks run along the ridge. The building is Grade II listed http://list.historicengland.org.uk/resultsingle.aspx?uid=1121921 . The Buildings of Grainger Town - No.191. See [[4406042]]." Photo by Mike Quinn, 2013.
