Study Description 

St. Johns Square, just north of Wakefield City Centre and the church is a Georgian development that was built between 1791 to 1796. It was masterminded by John Lee, a local solicitor and Francis Maude, a wool merchant. The study will focus on the lives, occupations and stories of the residents between 1791 & 1939 who lived in the twenty brick houses that are three storeys and make up the west and north sides of the Square. Most of the houses have now been converted to apartments. In the centre of the Square is the Anglican church of Saint John the Baptist.


1791 – 1939
