While Kings Head Terrace is not specifically identified as far as I can see,you can follow the "development" of the area by going through the historic maps at www.old-maps.co.uk.
I'm also a local (Dyserth).

Roger

Hi Zoe, that's very kind of your Dad to ask about the booklet, I'll keep my fingers crossed!

It's also very kind of you to offer to get photos, thank you, but I just live in Prestatyn, so it's easy enough for me to pop up (when it ever stops raining!)

Furber was the first name I have researched from the Memorial, I will be starting on the others soon, it's good to hear that Ottley may be an easy one if there was a large family - one other that I looked at was very difficult to connect with Meliden, but I got there with a lot of help!

Thanks for link to the maps Roger, I had been googling Kings Head Terrace, in the hope that I could find an old map of the area, showing it, but couldn't find anything. It will be interesting to see the development though, thanks :)

Hi Emma.  The building opposite Mount Pleasant was the King's Head Pub (now called Bank House). To the rear were cottages called King's Head Terrace.  I'm not sure if they are all still there or if some have been knocked into larger cottages.  All the maps I've seen just show a couple of buildings to the rear of the pub and not the 7? which there may have been.  Hopefully the attached picture will work.
