Goldthorn Terrace (rear view), Wolverhampton
This is the rear view taken from Goldthorn Road behind the Royal Wolverhampton School. The brickwork is thickly painted to give the somewhat "raw" red ochre hue. The whole terrace is now a listed building.

This terrace, (the frontage faces Penn Road) built in the 1850s was in a dilapidated state but was repaired and refurbished in the early 1980s(?) as ground floor flats and two floor maisonettes. In front of the terrace is an extensive depressed area which used to be gardens, but was re-landscaped as an open park-like area, which now partially hides the terrace from the main road. Now why on earth was such a valuable plot of land never utilized for housing, or an extension for the adjacent Wolverhampton Orphan Asylum (now Royal Wolverhampton School) which was already in existence? Read on for the (possible) grizzly story. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
