Renumbering of Properties on Quorn Streets

Over the years several of the older streets in Quorn have been renumbered. This can be extremely confusing when trying track the history of a house, or working out exactly which property a person occupied.

Listed below are some of the streets that are known to have been renumbered. The list is not comprehensive, as it has only been added to as relevant information has come to light in the course of other research. More dates and details will be added as further information emerges. Perhaps you can help!

Barrow Road
The odd side was renumbered between 1939 and 1945, and, for example, no 35 (Meadow View), became no 83.

Chaveney Road
Renumbered twice, once between 1938 and 1939 and again between 1953 and 1956.

Farnham Street
Most odd numbers moved by 4 when a new no 1 and no 3 were built between 1947 and 1953, eg no 5 became no 9.
Even numbers – Numbers have always 2 and 4 stayed the same. The ‘new’ houses built on the old allotment land in the 1920s/1930s were originally 6 to 12, but became 40 to 46 between 1971 and 1997.
