Brunswick Square was a late-18th century development off the south side of Bernard Street, midway between modern Queen's Way and Orchard Place. The square was developed during a new era of house building in the late 18th century, largely due to the popularity of the town as a spa resort. The terrace of houses shown in image 2, probably built in the early 19th century, was situated on the west side of the square. They survived the war, but were demolished during the redevelopment in the 1950s.
