Wentworth Street

A comparatively new street and planned in 1896. Originally there was some doubt about the suitability of the name which the Malton Urban District Council did not approve at its meeting in November 1896. [1]
The Council believed that the building of these houses would reduce the overcrowding in the district 'but many old houses exist which should cease to be occupied when they become vacant.' [2] The first six houses were built in 1897 [3]
