Smallbridge - A Lost VillageCode:
Smallbridge – A lost Village by Allen Holt, A4, 82pp.
A fascinating pictorial history of Smallbridge from its earliest beginnings to the present day.
Once a bustling village with shops and pubs, a community eager to lift itself from poverty and blossoming industry. A dual carriageway stops at what would have been the nerve centre of the village, under its surface… the footprints of the past. Much has disappeared but Allen Holt pieces together the fabric of this lost village and provides a visual document giving us an invaluable insight to the development of an urban Pennine village. Well illustrated with over 100 photographs including streets, buildings, houses, churches (inside and out), groups of people (women, children, schools, shops, transport. Also includes: Churches – Congregational and Football Team, St John the Baptist, St John C of E School photos, Wesley St. Methodist School Photo, Whit walks, carnivals and processions, pubs, cricket teams, tennis club, etc.
