CAMDEN CRESCENT 1. 823 Nos 6 to 21 (consec) ST 7465 NE 10/457 12.6.50. I 2. 1786-1792. Architect: John Eveleigh. 9 houses came down owing to landslide in early C19 at East End so that central feature is not now in middle. Corinthian pilasters through 2 storeys which change to three quarter columns in centre and at the 1 remaining end house, the ground floors of which are rusticated with circular headed windows. Much of the balustraded parapet removed to give light to the attic dormers. The ground rises to centre of Crescent and so order and entablature rise in continuous sweep, windows rising in groups of 3. 2 middle houses united by pediment on 5 columns causing a duality. In tympanum are Lord Camden's Arms. Central column supporting pediment is like Eveleigh's Grosvenor Hotel. Rising of the Crescent's facade towards centre is like his Somerset Place which also has similar front door details. Circular headed windows on ground floor have impost mouldings similar to Grosvenor Hotel. Original wrought iron railings remain.
