Brick is the dominant medium, often in Flemish or English Garden Wall bond or patterned with polychromy. For such a simple medium brick has been used in a number of imaginitive ways to give distinction to various buildings. Some of the Georgian bricks still have the imprint of the drying rack on their sides.
There's a strong Regency influence with the classic decorative balcony. Some timber-framed buildings still exist, many are hidden behind walls after being re-fronted. Look out for Venetian and sash windows, Y-tracery and batwing fanlights. Some of the voussoirs over the windows have been rendered in stucco.
Finally - some of the render and brick has been removed from the house below to reveal its original timber framed structure.
