HISTORICAL NOTE: the Bayshill Estate was developed by a joint
stock company which purchased land from the Skillicorne family
in 1837. By 1843 Henry Davies, in his Guide to Cheltenham,
described, 'a number of detached villas .. several of which
are occupied by resident families of affluence and station,
and others are in an unfinished state.'
Little considers this to be part of, 'a superb group (of
villas) that make Bayshill Road one of the great roads for
architecture in all England'.
