This is a fairly typical street in the town, most of it being lined on both sides with terraced bricked houses. The street does have a claim to fame, however. Those with sharp eyes may have noticed a blue plaque on the wall of the nearest house. The plaque commemorates the fact that this house was once the home of Hannah Mitchell, a celebrated figure in the fight for women's rights.
Born in Derbyshire in 1872, Hannah lived in this house from 1900 to 1910, at a time when she was making speeches at campaign meetings. Even though she suffered poor health, she was an active worker for the women's suffrage and Labour movements.
