Thanks to Syd Bird for the above early 1960’s photo of the row of cottages on Market Street.
For a comparison here’s the same view of the cottages taken this morning (not the most pleasant of mornings either). Notice the addition of the street lamp, road sign and flower beds. The roof on the lefthand building (formerly the Kingsway Cinema, currently a Home Bargains store) has gone. The righthand building were Hoose Court is was demolished. A couple of the cottages have lost chimney stacks.
