Behind Cumberland Place and Chester Terrace runs a sloping roadway with an attractive terrace wall and cast-iron railings with lamp-overthrows adjoining Cumberland Place, and lined on the east side with a terrace of smaller houses some of which back on to Albany Street. They have ground, first and second floors with pilasters between the windows to the two latter floors. The main entablature runs through practically without a break. The centre and ends are defined by an attic storey connected by balustrading. Alterations have unfortunately taken place with regard to some of the attic windows and part of the balustrading has been removed to improve the lighting.
