Woodville was built on the site of Cock's brick and timber yard in 1868 by John Cock, a local builder who was mayor in 1866. It has ornate carved bargeboards, fine first floor balconies and decorative garden gates. The house originally had a walled garden which backed onto Cooks Cross. Treeville, to the south, was built in the rose garden in the 1970s.
