Brunswick place

A row of cottages in Brunswick Street

 

This was a short row of five dwellings on the north side of Brunswick Street about 200 yards from the junction with Hendford.

To its immediate east was Brunswick Terrace.

Brunswick Place was demolished in the 1960s and the site is now the grassy bank opposite the entrance to Goldenstones.

Photographed in the 1960s, this photo looks along Brunswick Street towards Hendford with the steps to Chant's path at right and the entrance to Aldondale Gardens at left. Brunswick Terrace is the tall block of houses just left of centre with the next block to the left at a slightly lower level. Brunswick Place was the next block of houses to the left ending by the building on the road whose flank wall has three black windows.

 

The site of Brunswick Place and Brunswick Terrace is this grassy bank opposite the entrance to Goldenstones. Photographed in 2012.
