The Whaley Bridge Tea Rooms

This is a view of the Whaley Bridge Tea Rooms or Derbys Tea Rooms as it was sometimes known. It is on Buxton Road opposite the Cock Inn and I understand that the building still exists at the rear of the School Garage.
The building was originally the Whaley Bridge Mission, also known as The Iron Church.  The nearby Holy Trinity Church opened in 1905  making the Mission redundant. It thereafter became the Tea Rooms.  It apparently also served as the Fire Station prior to the building of the School Garage.
