Full Description

Forester Street, Forester Place. The row of artisans' cottages now 3-15 Forester Street and 1 Hill Brow (with gaps in numbering as two pairs of cottages have been run together to improve accommodation) was built as Forester Place between 1840 when the street was laid out, and 1843 when they are recorded as occupied. They are extremely pretty and also architectonic, their stuccoed frontage being set off by end pavilions and a central pediment. The architect may have been William Mansfield Cooper. (1)
