Statue House circa 1890s
 Not strictly a terrace but included here as a seafront feature worthy of inclusion. The Statue of George 3rd was erected in 1809 and this would appear to have encouraged a growth in building on surrounding land. The two rounded buildings, Statue House to the left and it’s companion were completed in 1815. Fortunately Statue House survives pretty much as it was, sadly the same can not be said of it’s companion. A view from the late 1930s is below
