Belgrave Terrace East End
Belgrave Terrace is a unique street with its own unique features and heritage. The properties are located within a primarily residential area known as Sowerby Town End. Made of Victorian red brick and slate terrace the terrace runs at right angles to and between Sowerby Road and Topcliffe Road. A shared pedestrian access runs between the two roads giving access to the front of the properties. Enclosed yards to the rear of the terrace are accessed off a shared vehicular alleyway between Belgrave Terrace and Mowbray Place.
"One of the best examples of Victorian domestic development in the Conservation Area”
The long front gardens and the lack of boundary features such as fences or walls between them gives Belgrave Terrace a distinctive and spacious setting which contrasts with the more tight knit form of development on the main roads. The retention of traditional features to the front elevations including ground floor bay windows, sash sliding windows and panelled front doors create a uniform appearance which is enhanced by the expansive and open gardens.
Thirsk & Sowerby are positioned in the northern half of North Yorkshire on the flood plains of Cod Beck. It sits on the A19 trunk road at the junction with the A61 to the west and Ripon.

The Conservation Area is made up of two competing settlements of Thirsk and Sowerby and takes in significant green areas that are key to the setting and historic development of the towns. Sowerby had always been a separate village, thriving on its close proximity to its larger neighbour but retaining a very different and distinctive character. Sowerby's fortunes rose during the Georgian period and many of the properties lining the green date from this period.
Many of the Victorian terraced houses and villas date from prior to 1856 (Sowerby Terrace, Sowerby Grove, Mowbray Terrace and Mowbray Place) through to approximately 1870, Belgrave Terrace being constructed by 1871.
