Full description

Colman Estate around 1890. Crown Point Villas are detatched red brick villas for the foremen. Blockhill Villas are a terrace of cottages for the workers. The easternmost pair in the terrace are however slightly larger perhaps suggesting another grade. [1]
Visited by E. Rose (NAU), 8 May 1976.

Map of 1883 (S1) shows Blockhill Villas but not Crownpoint Cottages so the cottages are indeed around 1890 but the villas are older.
Compiled by E. Rose (NLA), 1 September 2000.
