Percy Street, Ashton, 1900
« on: February 12, 2013, 01:16 PM »
Can anyone indicate where Percy Street and Hibberts Yard might have been in about 1900.  I think possibly between Brook Street and Old Street but not sure.

A lot of the streets around Victoria Street, between Stockport Road and the canal, were named after male christian names. There were also several small courtyards in that area, with extra houses built in spaces between streets.

I found a Percy Street, Ashton  on a 1962 A to Z street map. This may or may not be the one you're looking for.

Thank you Martin and Son of Nomad.  That looks like the right place to me, not too far from Old Street.  All I need now is some old photographs of that area!

Hi
         There was a spare ground there until they built an air raid shelter on it early in the war.  herby
