Pitt Street and houses with pointed lintels

Ha! Knew I had a photo somewhere showing the pointed lintels. I imagine this block would have been facing approx. where Netto now is. Not too sure though. Noticed the tiny, tiny, house?

Re: Pitt Street and houses with pointed lintels

Apparently this small Pitt Street house was built inbetween the old block and the newer block of cottages. Originally there was a dyke here that divided the lands of the Peels and the Lee-Warners.

So was that in the Pitt St area too then?

Yes. About 50 yards South.

Re: Pitt Street

I havn't been on for ages and so have missed quite a lot of stuff! I must say though, i've found this Thread to be very interesting, this is what this site is all about don't ya think!!!! plus loads of other stuff too!!!! anyway, I remember there used to be houses , under the viaduct, where the roundabout is now, on top of the wall there to the left as you come down from what used to be the clock garage. It's been so long since I lived there I don't remember the names of these streets, but there was also an off licience at the top there wher it joined KNowlmere street. anyway I wondered if anyone remembers what year these where pulled down?

Re: Pitt Street

when you ask am I a James, do you mean is that my surname?


Nah afraid not, as the name refers, it's Little! I left in '86 but have quite clear memories of the layout of some areas as I remember how they where and not what the'v become. I remember all the rows of houses across from Asda before that was built. There was a little corner shop in there that my dad used to take me too to get 1/4 salted peanuts! thing is I don't remember the names of these places!!!

Re: Pitt Street

Willie - this thread is about Pitt St. You should have started a new thread, It might have been useful for you to have clicked onto Search on the top line and typed Elephant St in to see if there is a thread for it, or if it had been mentioned in other threads. However, likely that you didn't know about Search. It ran between Birtwistle St & Plantation St. As I live away, I am not certain what is there now. Have a search for the 'Street Names' thread and it should tell you about the elephant after which the street is named.

Re: Pitt Street

It is no longer there Willie. That whole side of Plantation St has been totally rearranged.

Re: Pitt Street

But Lee Street is still there, so if you stand at the end of it, and look across, that's where Elephant Street would have been.

Re: Pitt Street

Indeed it is Atarah, as you can see on the inset map. The area from Cobham St (now Cobham Rd) down to Abbey St between Plantation St and Birtwistle St is the area which was demolished and now has a totally different layout.
