A curious little side street with massive, Georgian/early Victorian houses on one side and two-up two-down terraces on the other. Why the curious mix of architecture and does anyone have any insight as to the history of this road?Link to Street/Place

I grew up in Elephant Lane from 1946 to 1959. Directly opposite was the 'Mush'. Behind our house and looming over Moses' market garden, was 'The Cob'. An ancient coal tip, I presume, but does anyone know anything about its history?Link to Street/Place

My grandmother Polly Crompton lived at no 248,which was a shop in the trade directory! I always wondered why her front room window was so big.Now I know,she passed away in her home in 1969 aged 79yrs.My auntie Nell and Uncle Bob lived 5 doors away at no 238 and both worked at Pilkingtons glass Ravenhead.

I lived at no 47 Westfield st.My grandparents /parents owned Fishwick`s fireplace shop,which was on the corner of Water st &; Westfield st. across from Beechams, which was on the corner of Water st and Westfield st also. I lived there until Dec 1956 the shop had to be demolished to make the road wider for the college which was being built.In the 1891 census and trade directory no 47 was listed as The Peel Arms with David Moore as the head of the household.Link to Street/Place
