Saint Martin's Terrace
Victorian family house - 1900
Saint Martin's Terrace

Largish family house, terraced. Almost opposite the Pretoria Road example.

Built in around 1900 for the prison officers (the Canterbury prison, built in the early 1800s, is just behind it).

In Scoffham's book (see bibliography) he refers to this terrace, describing the 'bay windows, slate roofs and mock Tudor gables' as representing 'a peculiarly English combination of traditional and Gothic styles ... common towards the turn of the century'.
