This branch of Santander Bank was formerly a branch of the Bradford & Bingley.
Santander had acquired Bradford & Bingley's retail branches and savings business in September 2008.
In November 2004 they had acquired Abbey National plc and Abbey had become part of the Santander Group.
In January 2010, Abbey and the branch network of Bradford & Bingley were rebranded as Santander.
So for the last four years two branches of the bank have co-existed only a few hundred yards apart, but now the former Bradford and Bingley branch is being closed down and staff and accounts are all moving to the former Abbey branch.

The path over Knott Fold Bridge which spans the former Godley Junction to Apethorn railway line now used by the Trans Pennine Trail.
Compare it now with how it looked in September 2013.

Alas I cannot contribute this to Sunday Bridges at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo as for reasons I don't fully understand the blog owner has deleted all his blogs.

Norfolk Street runs parallel to Market Street from Union Street to Reynold Street.
It used to cross Reynold Street and carry on to the Market Place but that part was demolished in the 1960s when the precinct that later developed into the Clarendon Square Shopping Centre was created.
The Norfolk Arms was demolished as part of that development but is remembered by a blue plaque - see Old Hyde for details.

This rough field lies between the Foxholes estate and the Trans Pennine Trail.
Hoofprints attest to its use as a shortcut for horse-riders from Knott Fold.
