Abstract:
No 33 South Street is a Regency style building typical of the first 30 years of the 19th century, its plan having been developed from a design first established in Britain during the early part of the 17th century. This provided a central circulation connecting each room directly with the entry and raised standards of privacy by making rooms self-contained. The centralised plan also harmonised well with the search for symmetry. Although only a small percentage of internal detailing remained, it was possible to see this as a form representative of the last phase of Georgian Classicism. The original external detailing shows this more clearly: windows are tall and narrow with very thin glazing bars and their surrounds are plain and clean-cut, a design that enhances the simplicity of the façades. The archaeological observation revealed a series of dark brown clayey coarse sands and garden soils, together with fragmentary 19th century pottery and animal bone. Trench 3, located within the area of an existing driveway, revealed the foundations of the building and the roughly bonded outer face of the cellar. The foundation coursing suggested the use of locally sourced brick from a demolished structure of early post-medieval date.
