Several houses were demolished in the late 1880s to make way for two new terraces each containing four cottages. Another six were added in the late 1890s, but the remainder of the street was not built up until the turn of the century. By this period houses were constructed to a rather higher standard than those already built, and include Victoria Terrace. Other details: Figures 1-2.
