Subsequent Building Alterations

John Greenwood’s historic “Gold Rush” era row of 6 terraces were sadly demolished sometime in the mid 1960’s and have since been replaced with a block of flats that has no front or back garden space.


This is the 1895 MMBW map. The valued front and back yard open garden space marked green which these Victorian era terrace homes once had has all since been lost and are now totally built over by the redevelopment.

Heritage Significance and Listings

Heritage Listings and Explanatory Notes

The group of modern flats recently erected on 3-13 Abbotsford street site which replaced the previous homes that had unique social and historical value and constructed here in the Victorian period, the new build has zero historical or social heritage significance nor do they have any front or back open garden space unlike other existing Victorian terraces that the surrounding area have.
