Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

Although none of the dwellings which inspired this curious local epithet survive, the memory of the terrace of five or six cottages, which comprised the row, persists. The name derived from the fact that each house had a man named Jack living in it. In another era, the row was used as malt store houses, thus the road named as ‘Malthouse Lane.’ (1)
