Although Twerton (or Twiverton as it is alternatively termed by the Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales in 1870-72)) is best known for its woollen/weaving trades, this part of Bath has also seen vineyards (around 1743 at "Mr Cawleys vineyard") and coal mining (Pennyquick Colliery in Newton Rd from 1833 - 1874). Fancy goods, writing paper, dressed leather and brass products were also all made at mills in the village from the early 1700s onwards. A favourite recreation for visitors to Bath like Jane Austen (who took a 'very pleasant' walk to Twerton in April 1805) was to take an airing along the riverside meadows to "view the curious machinery in operation at the mills".
Landseer and Highland Roads were an early 20th century addition to Twerton streets and built on the site of an orchard (hence Orchard Terrace next door), with 20 of the homes in this road occupied by 1911. The remainder of the southern terrace was added later, with brick rear elevations the earlier houses do not share.
