Date:August 1964

Description:Penkhull Square was a courtyard of 20 cottages south of Penkhull Church on Trent Valley Road (formerly Trentham Road). The cottages were demolished in the 1960s and stood where the bungalows on Jeremy Close are today. Built by Josiah Spode II around 1800 the cottages were poor even by early 19th century standards, with a living room and two small bedrooms. The cottages were arranged in a square with an entrance arch (in the photograph) off the main road.
