Before Gordon Crescent and Terrace Street estate was built my Great Grandfather owned a cottage at the end of Terrace Street. It was called Harts Hill Cottage and was quite substantial and was double fronted and overlooked Fens Pool. He was a music teacher and died in 1915 and his wife in 1922 and in the 30s the cottage along with all the surrounding ground and houses was requisitioned by the council so that the ground could be used for a council estate. They both died at their son in law's house in St Thomas' Street, Netherton which no longer exists. Henry Golding (son in law) was a Dudley Mayor and Henry died in office 1933.
