Alderley Street

This picture is looking along Alderley Street, Hurst, towards Queens Road and the distant Pennine Hills. Cedar Mill once stood on the left, with the "Red School" beyond that.


  1. its just unbelievable ,it really is ,if i remember alderley st ,its th black and red school on either side of the street which i attended from age 5 to age 11 ,then on the left two or three little old houses ,then the cigarette factory ,with algar written on the chimney ,then on the right the football pitch then the cedar mill .after them some nice garden houses going up to kings rd ,if i remember rightly .it was a dirt rd .i wish i had a pound for every time i have run down this street when working at the cedar on evenings always on the last minute .

  2. Spinners,
    This photograph is looking along Alderley Street from t'other end...from near Kings Road.
    It has changed a great deal in recent years, the new houses on the left are where the Cedar Mill was. The playing field that leads up to Cedar Park is still there though you can't see it on the photograph. It has been grassed over now, I remember it was once all black cinders.

  3. I find neighborhoods such as this so friendly and homey. There's a lovely skyline and mountain view.
