I lived in Silkstone St in the 50s with my Mum, Dad and brother all now sadly deceased, I remember the fair-ride that used to come around pulled by a horse and Mrs Glovers shop on the corner which later became Tom Collins motorcycle shop. There was also a shop opposite the Tinsleys house.

OS map of 1847 shows the southerly half from alongside Ravenhead Laundry to be in existence at that time. The northerly half from presumably where the roof line drops a bit, was then built as the plaque says in 1854 (the 4 is now missing) by A.F. Anyone know who A.F. was?Link to Street/Place
