Spring Terrace, Netherton

Spring Terrace is the historic name given to the row of properties from 231 to 247 Meltham Road, below Netherton.

History

The properties were likely built in the 1860s by South Crosland stone mason and builder Bethel Holroyd (1804-1874) and his son, Edwin Holroyd (c.1837-1888). He had previously built the nearby Bethel Buildings.

The right-hand end property contains an Ordnance Survey cut bench mark.[1]
