The First Developments
Fox Street seems to have developed in a rather ad hoc way following construction of Bartholomew Row, but certainly the 1788 map by Thomas Hanson (Map 1) shows a mix of buildings here, but Fox Street unnamed.
The houses on Bartholomew Row seem to have been quite small and paired with a central tunnel entrance to access their rear gardens/areas, with doors to the street. Of all the surviving fabric of the site, only the ground floor of number 9 retains the latter feature. Indeed only number 9 and 10 Bartholomew Row (Building B) survive at all from this original period of construction of the whole of the street. Number 9 also retains what seems to be a small original, or early, extension to the rear. Certainly number 10 also had such an extension, but this no longer survives.
