Waterloo Street

Waterloo Street is off Kings Road, Hurst, rather than in the area called Waterloo. No doubt gets its name from the same battle but the houses were built rather later than 1815 when the battle took place. Perhaps someone out there knows why this street was given its name?

In fact the houses in this photo were built in a variety of periods, with the modern houses at the bottom of the hill being built on the site of Alger Mill.

The tall buildings in the distance are part of Tameside Hospital, with a backdrop of Hobson Moor, above Stalybridge.

See Google Aerial View of this location.
