c 1825-60

Pair of attractive brick cottages, c 1825-60. Slate roof with central chimney stack. Both halves of the building with later painted cement render. The upper eight-pane sash window of the right-hand cottage is likely to be original as is presumably the doorcase with integral pilasters and canopy. Its shop-front may also be early. The windows and door of the left-hand cottage is recent but the doorcase and canopy presumably reflect the originals and may incorporate parts of them.

* ERO D/B 6 Pb3/2321, 1906, building plan of two shop fronts, 16 and 17 MAGDALEN STREET, COLCHESTER, for C.H. Richards (owner), by G. Farran (architect and builder) ??
