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.
