18 Madras Road

History of 18 Madras Road

Nos 18 and 20 are of an early 1980s design, in a facsimile of stock brick,16 with rectangular slide – as opposed to sash – windows, and no chimney stacks, and are out of scale with the vernacular. They are slightly set-back from the road frontage of the others, possibly due to the 1960s/70s observation of the need for set-backs intended to accommodate expected road widening.
