Bridge Street, New Mills

Bridge Street, New Mills, photographed in the early 1900s.


On the right is the Bridge Street Tavern. The licensee was Abel Wild, Licensed Retailer of Ale and Porter. This photograph is dated 1902. At the corner of Mellor Road is Isaac Arnfield's grocery shop.


At the opposite end of Bridge Street and at the start of Dye House Lane was the White Hart Tavern. Arnfield's shop is seen on the opposite corner.


The same scene in 1954.  The North Western Bus is on the route between Birch Vale and New Mills via Thornsett. The start of Dye House Lane is at the front of the White Hart.

At the lower end of Bridge Street, opposite the former Bridge Street Tavern was Thompson's Bakery shop.

These photographs have been digitally colourised.
