Photograph number Streets 9

Circa 1950s

Church Lane


This lane ran between the church and the old school down into Brierley Park. The present school playing field is there now. I personally remember the lane in the 1960s by which time a wire fence with concrete posts had been erected either side of the path. This photograph was taken looking up from the Park end of the lane towards Church Street. I am told that oats was grown in these fields. The inset photograph shows where the old wall has been bricked up on Church Street. This is where the path used to come out (opposite the general store). The gate to the left of the arrow is the church gate next to the old school as it is today.
