History of The Range
The Range is an attractive group of former estate worker's houses built by the Aylmer family of Donadea Demesne - as a form of privately-funded social housing the terrace is of considerable social and historic interest. The houses were built in approx. 1850 and are unusual in that they are of two storeys, where the standard was single-storey, with or without a dormer attic. The front elevations of the houses are composed of graceful proportions and the terrace is constructed of unusually high quality materials, much of which have endured. The exposed stone work, meanwhile, is a picturesque feature of the houses. The terrace is a compact and attractive group that forms an imposing feature on the streetline. Today all the houses are beautifully presented and tastefully maintained homes.
