No. 7 Trinity Square (formerly Crescent Place) is likely to date from the early 19th century; the earliest evidence of a plot being defined is shown on the 1821 historic map. The 1852 map provides more evidence of the form of a single-room-depth house with a lean-to extension at the rear and is labelled at this time as 6 1/2 Trinity Square. By the twentieth century the building becomes a full two-room-deep house with a new roof and rear annex - aerial photography (see right) shows a central valley roof configuration as early as the 1920s and is suspected to have been constructed before the First World War.


During the mid-twentieth century the building was sub-divided into two flats, where unoriginal partition walls and kitchens were installed. Proposed works seek to reverse this sub-division and remove later and inappropriate interventions. New interventions are intended to return the building to a single family dwelling suitable for 21st century use. One key driver is the opening up of the rear annex at ground floor to better connect the living spaces with the rear yard (see below for existing and proposed views).
