Detailed History

Colleton Crescent was built between 1804 and 1814 by Matthew Nosworthy in the same elegant late Georgian style as his terraces in Southernhay. The houses are of red brick, with Coade stone surrounds and head keystones.

The crescent has a balanced design, with lower end houses, and the five centre houses of four storeys set slightly forward. The houses on either side of these have excellent tented balconies (not identical). The others have small lattice-work balconettes.

The end house on the left has been made neo-classical, with stuccoed flank wall and elaborate pilasters. The pleasure grounds were laid out at the same time as the crescent and are still maintained by the residents' association.
