In 2016, EXTENT Heritage recorded a row of terraces at 28-44 Campbell Street, St Peters for a Catalogue of Historic Building Fabric. The terrace row, otherwise known as “Bradfield Terrace”, were constructed by Henry Woodley between 1882 and 1906. Woodley was a local brick merchant who established a number of factories in the local area, and built the terraces to serve the needs of locally employed labourers.

Significance

Built in sucession between 1882-1906, the terrace row at 28-44 Campbell Street demonstrate brickfield workers’ housing from the 1880s to the turn of the 20th Century. Built from local bricks by brick merchant Henry Woodley, who owned and operated a several brick pits in the area, the dwellings provided housing for locally employed labourers. The terraces are representative of the middle class who inhabited the St Peters area during the industrial development, and are aesthetically significant as Victorians filigree style terraces. They are remarkable for retaining a largely uniform exterior from the front and rear, despite several additions in the following decades after their construction.

The Project

EXTENT Heritage were commissioned to prepare a Catalogue of Historic Building Fabric for the terrace group. This was in response to the approved demolition of the dwellings for the WestConnex New M5 (Stage 2) works. Tasks included:

  • Identification and documentation of internal and external fabric of historic value
  • Photography of all elements
  • Provision of recommendations surrounding the appropriate removal, storage, use and on-sell of historic fabric to the local community
