Statement of Interest

B-Group with 1-8, 9-10 and 11-12 Devanha Terrace. Devanha Terrace is an enlargement of what Brogden calls the "Aberdeen Cottage", developed from the Butt and Ben by the 1820's. Rather than the traditional single storey Devanha Terrace is 2-storey, moving away from the cottage idea towards the tenement. The unusual name of Devanha would appear to originate from the Romans, who referred to Chester as "Devana" because of its situation on "Deva" or Dee, much like Aberdeen, which has also been so called.
