Park Bridge today is a quiet backwater, accessible only along narrow and bumpy roads. However, when these houses were built it was a busy industrial setting with coal mines and the iron works of Hannah Lees and Sons, which supplied rivets for the Eiffel Tower. Most of the buildings of the iron works have now gone and their sites landscaped. The stable block has become a Heritage Centre and Park Bridge these days rings not to the sound of hammers on iron but of to the sound of walking boots on cobbles!
The houses of Dingle Terrace and nearby Dean Terrace were built to accommodate employees of the the iron works but these days are sought-after properties because of their enviable location.
See Bird's Eye View of this location to really appreciate the rural setting.
