Mabson Terrace is a small subdivision off Cornwall Street, built in 1967. The subdivision was named in honour of Cyril Rous Mabson, the late Borough Engineer. Mabson had retired in 1960 after nearly forty years’ service to the Borough, and had died in 1963.
The street was to be named Mabson Place but the Fire Brigade requested the name be changed to Terrace.
