The property occupies a most convenient and popular location on the western fringes of the city. The extensive range of shops and amenities in Chelsea Road are only a short walk up Station Road, whilst various schools, the Newbridge Park and Ride and Royal Victoria Park are all close by along with the cycle path to both the centre of Bath and Bristol. There is a footbridge directly behind Locksbrook Rd to Lidl, Oldfield Park Station and M&S.
The land for the property was conveyanced in December 1889 to the builder Samuel Kennard and the original deeds note "a parcel of land intended for the construction of Nos9 and 10 River View, Locksbrook Road". The house was occupied in 1895 by Charles Freeguard (stoker), who had moved only 40yds across the street from Clarence Place. Renumbered by 1900 and still the home of Mr Freeguard until at least WWI.
