Middleby Street, Newington

Middleby Street is an A listed 1820s Georgian end terraced house.  There were two separate rooms at the rear, a dining room and kitchen. Listed Building Consent was gained to form a large opening connecting the two rooms together and the kitchen was swapped over to the larger of the two rooms.

While stripping out the old kitchen the original Georgian stone fireplace opening was rediscovered. Using another fireplace in the house as a model a new timber chimney piece was remade and a salvaged hob grate fitted – now a suitable focus to this room.
