PLYMOUTH SX4554 KER STREET, Devonport 740-1/54/148 Nos.122 AND 124 21/01/54 Oddfellows Hall GV I Hall. 1823 by John Foulston. Stucco; roof hidden by parapet; stuccoed end stacks. Egyptian style. Rectangular plan. 2 storeys; symmetrical 3-bay front with tapered roll-moulded architraves framing each bay in the shape of a pylon. Coved hoods surmount the side bays and there are similar but smaller hoods above the 1st-floor windows. Tripartite windows to ground floor single lights above; original patterned glazing. Central recessed porch is flanked by 2 Egyptian columns. The porch is approached by a flight of stone steps and there is pergola-like wrought-iron basket-arched frame in front of the porch. INTERIOR: not inspected. This building is unique in the Plymouth district; probably its nearest rival is the Egyptian House in Chapel Street, Penzance. Part of an important group of civic structures by Foulston, some of the most remarkable for their date in the country. (The Buildings of England: Pevsner N: Devon: London: 1989-: 675).
