Goldenhill street names
on: December 13, 2012, 15:52

In the early 1950’s the city council decided to change some of the street names in Goldenhill, this is a table of changes that were made.

Old Name New Name

Albert Street Charlotte Street

Chapel Street Willoughby Street

Church Lane Broadfield Road (extn)

Church Lane Elgood Lane

Church Street Garbett Street

Cooper Street Park Farm View

Cross Street St.Joseph Street

Dale Street Andrew Street

Garden Row Wheatsheaf Row

Garden Street Willis Street

Heathcote Street Ancaster Street

John Street Brakespeare Street

New Street Anne Street

New Street Back Behind Anne Street

North Street Michael Street

Queens Street Alice Street

School Road Heathside Lane

School Street Eresby Street

Snow Hill Randal Lane

Victoria Street Drummond Street

Wesley Street Murray Street

Wesley Street (back) Perkins Street

Williamson Street Rodgers Street


In the grand demolition purge during the 1960’s some of these streets vanished completely.

People were rehoused away from the village and with them went a lot of the community spirit, I know that things have to change and progress has to be made, but at what cost?
