Agents Notes
The High St in Twerton was originally part of the main turnpike road out of Bath but this changed firstly in 1828 when the road was diverted at the west end of the High St (and a rank of cottages called Eleanor Place was built on the site of the present Eleanor Cottages) and then, in 1840 as part of the advance of Brunel's Great Western railway, the GWR was forced to construct the Lower Bristol Rd in recompense for driving the line through the village and the houses at How Hill were built across the site of the old turnpike. However, it is not until 1888 that the properties were individually listed in street directories (previously Twerton was only shown in village listings and residents were sorted alphabetically instead of by address). At that time, the owner of this property was James Offer (foreman at one of the Carr's woollen mills), with Joseph Hudd (weaver) and William Ward (engine driver) as neighbours. By 1900, little had changed in the terrace, with the majority of owners still working as weavers, foremen or GWR staff although William Ward had been replaced by John F Bailey (cabinet maker).
