The subdivision of Shepherd Street began in the 1880’s as can be seen in the Meeks Estate. A 7 foot wide drain is shown in this plan indicating that this low land was subject to flooding.

Shepherd Street

No 8 is a Victorian Terrace (c.1885) with leadlight in the fanlight above the front door. The leadlight is unlikely to be original. None of the other terraces have retained any leadlight.
