HISTORICAL NOTE: built as part of the development of this area
undertaken for Joseph Pitt, the general layout being designed
by the architect John Forbes. Military or East India Company
officers formed a substantial proportion of the small amount
of owners in Pittville who had bought their properties from
Pitt rather than a speculator.
All the listed buildings in Wellington Square form a good
group around a central grassed area.
