Bannawell Street is a residential street which rises northwards from the town centre up a gently sloping valley. The buildings are mainly of the late 18th and 19th centuries and some of them are listed. Of the unlisted buildings, a very high proportion of them have been assessed as ‘positive’, being good examples of relatively unaltered historic buildings where their style, detailing and building materials provides the streetscape with interest and variety. The buildings are arranged in terraced form, or in small groups of matching design.

In Tavistock, a high number of unlisted buildings in the conservation area have been assessed as making a 'positive' contribution to the special architectural or historic interest of the conservation area. Most of these date to the 19th or early 20th centuries, and include terraced houses in Bannawell Street. Some of these may be considered for local listing, and there will be a presumption in favour of retaining 'positve' buildings.

The terraced houses are mainly two storey, two and three window ranges. They are built of stone, some stuccoed, many with brick or stone dressings.
