Dorset Road in July 2001.

Dorset Road like the rest of the estate was built during the 1930’s, and named after the county of Dorset.

It is a Cul de sac, with there being a turning point at the bottom of the road for vehicles to turn round.

The road runs from the Esplanade towards Somerset Road, in parallel with Gloucester Road and Somerset Road to its right.

The road was finally made up at the end of 1937.

A letter was submitted to the council on the 6th April 1939, in connection with the liability for street works which had been carried out in Dorset Road. The council clerk pointed out that the liability for payment of such charges is on the owners of the property abutting on the street.
