HISTORICAL NOTE: Park Place was developed by 1832.
Verey states that 'this street .. consists mostly of detached
or semi-detached villas, nearly all with neo-Greek detail, and
some very much in the style of JB Papworth, who designed a
house for a Captain Capel in Cheltenham.' He sites Nos 16 and
18 (qv) Park Place as most resembling this design.
