An early 19th century name for the group of streets - Bellevue Street, Northam Street, Compton Walk and Brunswick Terrace - just north west of East Park. This area dates back to the 1820s; the 1829 Town Guide mentions newly erected cottages in Charlotte Place. In 1849 Brannon called it an “assemblage of humble dwellings at the back of Compton Walk”. Most of the houses in this area were demolished in the 1960s. Charlotte Place car park now occupies the site.
