HISTORICAL NOTE: Park Place was developed by 1832. Verey notes
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 Papworth, who designed a house
for Captain Capel in Cheltenham.' He sites Nos 16 (qv) and 18
as most resembling this design.
