at Cannock Road, Wolverhampton, WV10 8QD United Kingdom

<p><b>Pear Tree</b> is an inner city suburb of <a href="/pages/w/108050889223312">Derby</a>, <a href="/pages/w/105955176103450">England</a>. It is situated next to the areas of <a href="/pages/w/112745175407608">Normanton</a>, <a href="/pages/w/135549866479552">Rose Hill</a> and <a href="/pages/w/103148493058069">Osmaston</a>. Pear Tree (sometimes spelled as <b>Peartree</b>) could be described as a suburb within a suburb because the people of Derby would identify it as an area in its own right, but it could also be described as forming part of the larger area of Normanton.</p><h2>History</h2><p>Consisting mainly of workers' terraced housing, and some 1950’s local authority housing, Pear Tree is typical of an <a href="/pages/w/107993395901663">Edwardian</a>/<a href="/pages/w/104094586294506">Victorian</a> inner city suburb which, when built at the end of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, would have been regarded as bordering the edge of the then Town of Derby. The area was formerly the land of Pear Tree Farm, which existed locally well into the twentieth century, and from which the name of the district was derived.</p><p>The housing stock would almost certainly have been built to house workers in Derby’s then growing manufacturing industries including <a href="/pages/w/109564009070411">Rolls-Royce</a>, the <a href="/pages/w/105580332810196">railways</a>, and the chemical industries. Until relatively recently the housing stock in the Pear Tree, Normanton and Rose Hill areas was looking rather shabby and neglected. However, thanks to a rather forward thinking programme endorsed and part financed by the local authority, investment has been going into the area and the majority of the mainly terraced housing has been renovated to a modern standard providing useful accommodation for Derby's younger owners and first time buyers. During the 1970s and 1980s there were plans to demolish a large part of the houses, and the properties and businesses suffered considerable blight and became run-down; eventually only a small section of shops and housing on Pear Tree Road adjacent to Stanhope Street and Corden Street was demolished, with minimal compensation and grounds, and families who had lived there for decades and longer were forced out of the area.</p>
